Bring Happiness to Kids With The Thing I Do Challenge
The Thing I Do Challenge is about sharing with kids the thing YOU do. It could be your career, a hobby, sport or extracurricular activity!
Mrs. Stacks, an elementary school counselor who enjoys sharing fun activities incorporating social emotional learning shares:
Erin Young is an elementary school teacher.
What don’t most people know about you? That I always wanted to be on Broadway (and still do!)! I absolutely love musicals (my favorite is Hamilton!) and sing (loudly and not in tune) in the car all the time!!
What do you want to be known for?
I would love to be known as the person who had a smile for everyone. Sometimes all anyone needs is a smile to brighten their day! It is free and easy and can make another person feel so much better!
What are you passionate about? Why?
I am passionate about reading books to kids. In fact, I would LOVE to host a new version of Reading Rainbow (remember that?!) I believe kids love listening to books. A good book has such power! It can get kids under it’s spell! They can learn about the world around them, learn about amazing people, learn to acquire a new skill, or learn how to be a better human! Books can make us laugh, cry and realize more of who we are. I love sharing my love of reading and my voice and my questions and my thinking aloud to get kids under that spell!
