What I learned in preschool

During the last two weeks I was filling in as a teacher’s aide for the three-year-olds' class at Trinity Preschool and Kindergarten in Mesa.

A few things I found out...

  • Mixing finger paint with dish soap will help it wash out easier.
  • Even though some kids love getting messy, others can't stand it.
  • Ear infections can come on suddenly - sometimes without a fever.
  • Needing to go to the bathroom can be contagious.
  • Getting hands washed (well) is more complicated than it seems.
  • The day that Mom is in the classroom is the best time to act up.


  1. You learned some interesting things! Maybe I should go hang out with your mom sometime.

  2. Oh yes, spending time with kids is always a learning experience!

  3. A little explanation: my mom is the director at Trinity (and the reason I was filling in there while they looked for an additional aide). So hanging out with my mom = hanging out at the preschool = learning all those fun things about kids. :)


What do you have to say about that?
