Stranger 20 / 100 from my 100 Strangers Photo Challenge
One word to summarize your January month: Tired
Mary was my 2nd stranger in my 10 stranger special subway challenge. Mary is a teacher in kindergarden (5-7 yrs old) and she had a pretty though month of January so she was really tired. She is currently studying in education and teaching as an intern. I asked her if she had tricks to help us deal with more troublesome kids because it could be useful to me. She told me that usually, you know each kid behavior, pattern and personality, but the first thing you should always do is talk to the kid like an adult, making an emotional connection and try to understand WHY they are excited. Once you know the root of the problem you can much more easily deal with it. Most people skip that step.
