When a parent tells you that you are the first person to bring their child out of her shell, you will have all the glory of a Roman Emperor. When a boy with wobbly legs is able to walk along a board holding a hula hoop, your glory will be greater than that of a Starfleet commander. Remember that one kid, Bluto? The one who laughed the loudest when other kids fell? You were the only one who saw him at the end of the year when he apologized for bumping into the new kid. If you'd rather be known as an innovative, caring, dedicated, and effective childcare professional than for lip synching the National Anthem, then the glory of the preschool teacher is yours.
