My son

Will student teach in second grade in January (the same grade I did 29 years ago..I’ve always taught 4th).

He is 6’7” so he will tower over the kids. I’m very nervous for him!

They'll love him!

Try not to worry. Most little kids I know love the novelty of having a male teacher. They'll be excited! And remember, everyone is tall to them, they're used to it. <!--giggle-->

No worries!

They’ll love him, especially if he goes out at lunch or recess and plays with them. Remind him to physically go down to their level when he can like when he’s talking one on one. Second graders are sweet and still love their teacher!
