I’m going to brag a little bit. My Husband is pretty incredible. A couple times a year he signs up with this program, Junior Achievement. They send him a pack of teaching lessons and the class he’s assigned to.
For the past few weeks Matt’s been taking off a couple hours of work each week and teaching a class of 4th graders. He teaches them on their level the type of work he does. He taught them about starting a business and saving money.
The best thing, I think, was when he strayed away from his lesson plans for a different plan. Matt decided to give each child in the class one dollar. They were then given the choice to keep their dollar and spend it or when Matt came back the next week, if they saved it, they would get another dollar!
The way M tells the story is the best! The kids went crazy when they were handed the first dollar. Only one child chose not to save it. That one child was mentioned quite frequently in the Thank You notes given at the last class. One child said he did not think that was a very smart choice to keep the dollar.
I am so proud of my husband for taking time out of his work day to spend time with these kids and showing them the ropes of business. The Thank You notes said it all for me. Every kid had a great time, thought he was THE BEST and couldn’t believe he gave them FREE MONEY! The boys over that they had a boy teacher. I’m pretty sure one girl has a crush going on and one said he liked when Mr. Hubbell came because she didn’t have to do spelling. Those Thank You notes were awesome.
I’m proud of you, baby. I know, one day, you’ll make a great Daddy.
