"look at this, teach"
I have a little girl in my class who cracks me up. She's not short on self esteem. She does think that she is the best at any and everything in the world. She is darling. She is smart. She is creative. And she'll tell you. And her friends. She'll also let anyone else know that their work isn't as good as hers, or what I've asked for, if they're struggling. Sometimes, this confidence gets in her way. Like I have told her a few times, in private situations that she needs to keep her opinions to herself. (She definitely has made a few of her friends cry...) That she doesn't need to tell everyone in the world how wonderful she is, even if we know its true. She calls me "Teach" & it cracks me up. Like "Teacher" or "Miss Jones" is too much , it would waste her time. Oh dear... You've gotta love first born daughters in the world - their personality is nothing if not sure!
