"Miss Dailey" is my puppet. She comes to school with me. The kindergartners think she is real. They listen to her and obey her. In fact they'll do "anything" for her ~ smile!
I want to share with you where I got "Miss Dailey's name. I have great respect for the woman I was teaching under during my student teaching in the big city in another state. Yes, you've probably guessed, her name is Miss Dailey.
This is the real Miss Dailey back in 1991. She taught me many things. She is a person with a big heart. One of the things she used to say to me, on days that I shed many tears over mistakes I made was, "Kathi, did you learn from it?" I would tearfully say, "Yes." Then she'd give me hug and say, "Then it's a success, Kathi. Be positive and dwell on the good things you learned from those mistakes." Thank you, Miss Dailey, for being a huge inspiration to me. Your courage and positive outlook have impacted my life. I often tell my children the same thing... "Did you learn from it?...Then it's a success!" Miss Dailey gave me courage when I needed it most. Dear Blogging friends, I hope you can do the same today. Love, Kathi "I can do all things through Christ, which strengthens me."
