My daughter texted me tonight to let me know that she got her placement for her practicum, or whatever they call it, for her education major class. She is pleased with her assignment.
I told her that she is a natural - she's smart, she likes working with children, and she is very, very creative. That's a great combination for going into education.
Plus, genetically, she doesn't have a chance. :-) Her mother, both her grandmothers, and two aunts on each side of the family - four total - were all teachers!
There is something very enjoyable in watching one's daughter start to meet her educational goals and do well.
