There’s nothing more rewarding than seeing a light in a child’s eyes, a light of understanding or accomplishment and you know that you have reached them.
Another great reward one year was at the end of the school year. There was a little reception for the kids and their parents and when one of my little young students I
had read to came up to me pulling his mom’s hand, and with a grin from ear to ear and introduced me to his mother. The sincere thanks that I received from his mom was a great reward.
All together, I have had this wonderful opportunity of reading with the kids for 10 plus years and I plan on doing this same thing for hopefully a few more years.
