Wednesdays are my official volunteering day for Tornado E’s class. I’m the librarian. The school district has cut elementary school librarians out of the budget, so if a teacher wants one, s/he has to find a parent. And I love it.
I get to check in and out the books. I have the kids’ names right in front of me, so I’m learning their names. I get to discuss books with the kids and help them find the books they want. I even had time to shelf books yesterday. It’s so fun.
But there are unintended side effects.
Girl Student: Wow. That’s a huge scar on your head!
Tornado E: The doctors had to cut something out because she didn’t wear sunscreen.
Yup, I am the official “Wear sunscreen, kids, or get huge scars on you face” mascot.
