Touched My Heart



We as teachers should always be honest with our responses with our children when teaching. Today's lesson was a unique one. It was a wonderful teaching experience for me.

Today's class had two children in my "Returnees" class. ("Returnees" classes are for children who have either lived abroad or are proficient in English.) One was a 7 year-old boy and the other was a 6 year-old girl.

In the middle of the lesson, I began to teach "family members." First, I taught the meaning of "mother and father."

When I explained what "big brother" meant, the little girl said so innocently in English, "My brother died."

I compassionately put my hand on her shoulder and said, "I am so sorry to hear that. You know. My big brother died, too. I did not know him because he died before I was born."

After telling her my experience, the little girl had a pretty smile on her face -- a smile of relief that she was not the only one who had lost a loved one.

This little girl reminded me of a valuable lesson today. "Do not be afraid to share your life with others, especially with children."

Thank you for reading about my experience today.

Andy
