K-8 teacher Kaila Kelleher of South Dakota has been on the job since she was a kindergartner, but she’s now getting to know her new K-1 students.
“It’s been great to be a part of this family,” Kelleh said.
“They are doing the best they can.”
The K-7 class is just beginning, but Kellehe and her K-2 and K-3 students are doing everything right.
“They are very active and they are doing their homework.
I don’t know if you have seen the pictures of the K-6s,” Kail said.
Kail and her three K-5 classmates have been working on their new badges for weeks.
Kelleher said they have to work on their work habits, their social skills and their overall work ethic.
“We are doing this because we are part of the family, but we are also the kids,” she said.
“The kids are getting to the point where they know the KAIKER badge is not going to be good enough for their job.”
For Kail, it’s not just about keeping up with the Joneses.
“I don’t feel like I have any other options,” she added.
“I have to have my job.”
