I have been teaching TinyTalk now for 6 years which is 18terms but this particular class there were children graduating that I had taught from being small babies and now they are leaving because they are going to school.
Two of the children have more than likely attended 12 terms of classes and another more than likely 9 terms as going to school a year earlier.
Through my time teaching TinyTalk I come across many families and I love them all but this session if I were to be sentimental I would have cried, I am sentimental but not in public, not with eyes on me, I can be sad and also happy with the children's journey.
Then there is a little girl among these in the photo that is going away for a year as mum is moving away but will be back and she belongs to my mini teacher so we will see more of her in the future. Also hoping will see some of a new baby sister that was born not long ago perhaps in the new year.
What was special though was the thought from the children the big brother too as he had attended TinyTalk in Bath another part of the UK when he was small but also the thought in gifts, it was so touching I felt special.
I really hope I can touch the lives of others how I have touched the lives of these children and families. Its times like this that I realise I need to continue to carry on and do what I love with a passion.
below is a picture of me and my gifts and just look at the picture the girls did for me.
The photos are the girls signing " I Love TinyTalk" How wonderful.
I am a mother of 4, teach baby signing and also BSL level 2 qualified, love TKD and much more.
