Thank Heavens for Great Teachers!

Noah just happened to totally luck out for his first year of school because his kindergarten teacher is an angel sent from heaven. I'm not sure how we are going to manage next year without her.

Phil is home sick today and he was laying on the couch listening while Noah and I read after school. Noah said something about the aide in his class, Mrs. Manning, which confused his dad because Phil wasn't sure who Mrs. Manning was. He asked Noah to remind him what his teacher's name is and this is exactly what Noah said:

"Her name is Mrs. Payne. But she's not full of pain." -short pause- "She's full of GOODNESS!"

Is there anything better than knowing for sure that your kid is spending his school day with somebody that he describes as "goodness"? What five-year-old even talks like that, by the way? But he's right. I'm not sure that there is a better word to describe Mrs. Payne.

I LOVE good teachers!
