I love Ted Talks, and I love a great story in education that makes me cry. So, naturally when I came across this Ted Talk it simply melted my heart. I really felt the need to share. Please watch and share this. It is worth all 5 minutes and 24 seconds of your time!
The author shares how lunch ladies are heroes. I could not agree more. I love listening to my daughter tell me sweet stories about the lunch ladies in her life. She always seems to find her way in their hearts and loves talking with them every day.
Here are just a few reasons I love our lunch ladies:
1. They always have smiles on their faces when they are serving others.
2. They treat every child with respect.
3. They treat every adult with respect.
4. They like to laugh and have fun.
5. They are so generous with compliments.
6. They never complain.
7. They genuinely have interest in the kids.
I could mention how great their cooking is, and it really is…BUT, the things I adore about them is that they adore these students. They are sweet ladies who want these kids to succeed. Amazing students succeed because of all of the amazing people making a difference in their lives. Children need to have their little hearts and bellies full before they can fill their minds with knowledge.
What an amazing reminder of how one little thing we do can make a difference in someone else’s world! This is the time of year when everything is so busy. The days just fly by, and before we know it a new year is here!! My goal each day is to remember this one little thing.
