And now the continuing stories of your favorite hero, Kevin D. Hendricks, kindergarten volunteer. Today number recognition was left behind and new ground was forged in rhyming words, letter sounds, and how not to listen to the teacher. Today demanded patience, energy, and quick thinking. Needless to say, when I finally returned home I took two aspirin and crashed on the couch, refusing to move for half an hour. I now have a new found respect for teachers that somehow manage to do this every day. Are they really dedicated people (a.k.a. crazy), or just well paid?
