I Want to be a Colorer When I Grow Up

I want to be a colorer when I grow up the child told the class. The teacher qualified her answer. “You mean an artist?” No, the child replied. “a colorer.” “So you want to color and get paid for it,” I said. The child nodded. Sounded good to me.

Definitely she thinks outside the box (of crayolas, of course). Why do teachers rush in to "qualify?" Generally speaking, children mean exactly what they say!

Some teachers LOVE to correct children who are already being correct, just in a new way.

I like it, Caren. That was a good example of a good teacher. Accepting, encouraging, and non-judgmental. Check, Check, Check! Well done, Bill
