Today, I went to the library to pick up a few books that I need for some lessons this week. One of the books that I needed wasn’t available so I asked if there was something similar that would work to help me teach the lesson The woman working at the checkout desk told me I should speak with the head librarian Jane, but she wasn’t available. I was about to leave when she arrived. The woman told Jane that I had a question for her and as she approached me, I could tell that she recognized me as a teacher from one of the local schools. She comes to talk to all of our students right before the summer to tell them all about the summer reading program at the library.
I introduced myself as Claire Sinclair, a Kindergarten teacher at Tuscan and she gave me a big smile and told me she had been looking to get in touch with me. I was surprised and asked why. First she laughed and said, “Do you know if you google your name, you’ll find a stripper?” I laughed, because yes, there is in fact a famous Playboy Playmate named Claire Sinclair. I often tell parents of students to be careful when looking me up because that is who they will stumble upon first!
Jane told me that she was already looking ahead to the upcoming summer program and she was hoping to tie it into “community service and helping others” theme. She told me she had heard about my kindness projects and knew that this would be something I’d be interested in. She was right! Without her saying another word I told her I was on-board to help! We were already looking at a few idea and will now be in touch to talk about it more. I am looking forward to it so much!
It won’t be until next summer, but stay tuned for more details!!! Thanks for approaching me today Jane! I am honored and can’t wait to work with you on this great idea!
