365 Things to Smile About Day 340. It's Clicking!

I think any teacher, no matter what it is they are teaching, will tell you that one of the best moments in the job is when you see the things you are repeating over and over finally fall into place in your student's mind and everything starts to click!  I know I am not a typical teacher.  I am an O & M specialist (or will be in a little over a month).  But no matter what we call the people we work with; client, consumer, student, we are in fact teaching them.

I teach skills that can be used in any given situation.  But all I can do is present them to the person I am working with and show them how to use them.  And sometimes you find yourself presenting the same thing over and over again.  Like Cardinal Directions ( North, South, East West).  And then a day like today happens.  Sometimes it happens right away, sometimes it takes days or weeks or even months. I saw things start to click in one student and I wanted to do a happy dance!!!  Maybe it might not seem like a big thing to get cardinal directions down and know what direction you are facing.  But it is an AWESOME thing to see come together when it has been a struggle and is important to staying oriented and traveling  Yes, today was exhausting like every day has become.  But I don't care because today I got to see a mind put it all together and make an awesome jump forward!
