Mrs. Angel Rhodes
Hello! I grew up in Northern Kentucky and graduated from the University of Kentucky with a bachelors in education. I met and married my wonderful husband, Nathan in Kentucky. I started my teaching career in Kentucky. I later taught in Mississippi. This is my 9th year teaching in Alabama. I will be teaching kindergarten and first grade special education this year.
I Learned In Kindergarten
And what to do and how to be I learned in kindergarten.
Wisdom was not at the top of the graduate school mountain,
But there in the sandpile at nursery school.
These are the things I learned:
Don't hit people.
Put things back where you found them.
Clean up your own mess.
Don't take things that aren't yours.
Say you're sorry when you hurt somebody.
Wash your hands before you eat.
Warm cookies and cold milk are good for you.
Live a balanced life——learn some and think some and
Draw and paint and sing and dance and play and work everyday some.
Take a nap every afternoon.
When you go out into the world, watch out for traffic,
Hold hands and stick together.
Be aware of wonder.
Remember the little seed in the plastic cup.
The roots go down and the plant goes up and nobody really knows how or why
But we are all like that.
Goldfish and hamsters and white mice
and even the little seed in the plastic cup - they all die.
So do we.
And then, remember the book about Dick and Jane
and the first word you learned, the biggest word of all:
Everything you need to know is in there somewhere.
The Golden Rule and love and basic sanitation.
Ecology and politics and sane living.
Think of what a better world it would be if we all -
had cookies and milk about 3 o'clock every afternoon
and then lay down with our blankets for a nap.
Or if we had a basic policy in our nation
and other nations
to always put things back where we found them
and cleaned up our own messes.
And it is still true,
no matter how old you are
when you go into the world,
it is best to hold hands and stick together.
