I usually go all out crazy for them. I love being silly to make kids laugh and feel good. It teaches them to be brave, to put themselves out there. To teach how to laugh at themselves.
This day was wacky hair day. I had an important meeting after school, so I couldn't go too crazy. So instead I did something I would never do.
Another day was Double D Green day- school was honouring Duane's induction into the hall of fame. Of course we wore green because Duane ended his career with the Roughriders. I wore my jersey and a wig.
But I will be super honest. It is hard. Hard to always put myself out there and be silly. This green day, there was only 1 other staff member that participated. And about 12 kids. So I went home thinking why on earth do I keep doing this? I was frustrated, annoyed. But at the end of the day... my class kids LOVED it. They call me silly, the bond is forming, I am getting love and the behaviours are happening less and less.
So next spirit day, will I be in? you will have to wait and see....
Life is a roller coaster adventure I am riding. :)
