This job is unpredictable, the hours are long, but it’s the best job in the world

A day in the life of a kindergarten teacher can be unpredictable, even for fifth-year Uplift Peak teacher Elizabeth. As she arrives to her classroom ahead of her scholars, she flips the light switch to illuminate walls adorned with a collage of letters, numbers, scholar projects, maps, and the mascot of her alma mater, the SMU Mustang.  In the quiet 15 minutes before scholars arrive she purposefully moves through the classroom with a marker in one hand and papers in another, making last minute adjustments to plan that usually changes once scholars arrive at 7:30. As these tiny variables walk into the classroom to change her itinerary, Elizabeth embraces each scholar and begins her day at the best job in the world.
