Thankful for our preK teacher

I am so blessed to have my girls enrolled in a wonderful preschool/daycare.  Munch’s teacher is Miss K.  This teacher is an angel.  She is incredibly creative; her bulletin boards are a work of art.  Miss K is preparing the children for kindergarten, but she is also imparting life lessons.  Munch adores Miss K.   

Miss K made my morning the other day just before Christmas break.  She pulled me aside to show me something that Munch had made.  Miss K remarked that Munch was innovative.  Munch can see something and recreate it.  She has a wonderful gift, and Miss K’s comment showed me what a thoughtful teacher she is. 

Munch received the coolest gift from her great-aunt this Christmas.  She received a book that shows her how to draw animals.  I posted the pictures that Munch drew on Facebook, and her lovely teacher was one of the first people to like her drawings.  I feel so blessed to have such a kind and caring professional like Miss K to help guide my sweet Munch. 

I learned all about the curriculum for this school year just before the school year started in a meeting with Miss K.  At that point I confided in Miss K that I had suffered from postpartum depression and postpartum anxiety after I had Skeeter.  I advised Miss K that Munch had experienced some emotional trauma.  Munch saw me not coping very well.  I shouted a lot, and I cried a lot.  I advised Miss K that Munch and I together were learning new coping skills on managing our emotions.  Miss K offered me nothing but support and praise for helping instill coping mechanisms for my sensitive Munch.  I pray that we find as wonderful and as caring of a kindergarten teacher for Munch.  We will not forget Miss K.  She is truly one of a kind.

  1. Oh Jen, I’m so thankful Munch has a teacher like Miss K. I wish there were more of her!

    • Rach, I feel so blessed. We took our time choosing our daycare/preschool. I feel like we were guided to that center. It’s close to home, and the teachers and directors have become like family to us.

    That’s awesome. I often worry about the emotional trauma monkey has gone through, I hope to get a great teacher as you did for Munch

    • Jessica, I thought I was going to be sick when I told Miss K my story. It was the first time that I had disclosed to anyone at our daycare/preschool about what had happened. I was met with nothing but love and understanding. I think that it helps to talk to the teacher about each child’s personality and quirks. It provides them an emotional insight into what goes on at home.
