Oh wad some power the Giftie gie us, To see oursels as ithers see us!

Sometimes the kids I teach just take the wind out of my sails.

I was working with a young girl last week who had just started at the school. It was her first lesson with me, she didn’t know her way round the school or where she should be next and she spent most of the lesson saying negative things like “I’m not very good at this” or “I won’t be able to play that”.

At the end of her lesson, one of my older pupils came in. I turned to her and asked her to reassure the little one that I am not in the habit of eating my pupils.

“No” she said, “you…just…well…you sort of… fluff them up!”
