Today was one of those school days I look forward to.
My mom’s birthday is Sunday
and every year I have my class surprise her
by calling her to sing a rendition of “Happy Birthday,”
cha-cha-cha’s and all.
And I love it because every year, without a doubt,
she is just as surprised as the first year of this tradition.
I think one of my favorite parts is
watching the kids sit squirmy and giddy,
smiling ear to ear as they wait silently for me to give them the cue.
Just another way I bring the “Joy Factor” into my classroom
and a way to tell my mom I love her.
Happy birthday, Mom!
