When my niece, Abigail, was a little girl she taught every doll and friend that came into her make-believe class room. Playing school was her favorite thing to do and there was never a doubt what she would be when she grew up. She is now a teacher with a real classroom that looks much like I would have expected it to look, perfectly in order with lots of attention to detail. She loves her job just like she loved playing it, not so long ago!
I mention Abby because I am seeing a repeat story in my granddaughter Isabelle’s life. Although she has many interests, she spends much of her time in her specially designed classroom, teaching her stuffed animals (only eight at a time), writing test papers and grading them, keeping current bulletin boards and good behavior charts.
Emily went with me recently to take notes while I interviewed Issy and snapped photographs of this future teacher.
Isabelle's special class room is but two steps up from her own lovely, well appointed bedroom. It is hard not to stop and stay awhile in her room filled with bright colors and loads of lovely, girlie treasures. But, for this day we are interested in Issy's passion for TEACHING!

Thanks for sharing, Isabelle!
