Watching the metamorphosis – a kindergarten teacher’s view

ONTARIO—Every year at the beginning of the school year, I am reminded of why I believe teaching kindergarten is one of the hardest jobs in the world.
In August, my new students are famous for crying, wandering, asking off-topic questions, telling off-topic stories, sleeping at inopportune times, and tattle-taling, just to name a few. For the first three months of the year, I go home each night completely frazzled and so exhausted I can barely keep my eyes open.
