Gulp. That's one of the comments I got from one of our Tigers the first year we started homeschooling. And talk about a mix of emotions, this made me smile, cry, love, and tremble at the responsibility! Yet, I know how important a teacher can be to a child.
The years our children were in traditional school (both private and public - yes, we've done it all! :) We were fortunate enough to have awesome teachers for each child each year.
So I have big shoes to fill! :)
