This is a picture of a generic preschool class, not the one I’m writing about.
Recently, I’ve spent a lot of time around the preschool classes at our church. We moved the children from one building to another this past summer, and I worked at various jobs, mostly involving disassembling and reassembling furniture and also a fair amount of painting. I’ve continued to do various jobs around the preschoolers , and so have had occasion to be around the little ones as they come to school, as their teachers work with them, and as they leave at the end of the day. I am so impressed by the caring and patience of the preschool staff, led by Miss Stephanie (I’m not using full names for privacy). The teachers include Miss Lori, Miss Debbie, Miss Sara, Miss Tawanda, Miss Caitrin, Miss Lauren, Miss Bard and Miss Rachel. What they do with the children will make a difference for the rest of their lives. And this scene is repeated thousands of times across the county as caring men and women work with our smallest students.
Thank you preschool workers! God bless you and your students and prosper your work.
