kjrai Love is: purposely muddying up your new Converse and playing hopscotch roughly 75 times with your special needs student so he isn't muddy, sad and playing alone. Although he challenges me to the core, nothing he can do will make me love him less. #teacherlife 1d

kjrai #tbt to my very first time 'performing' in front of people at our family reunion talent show! (Yes, my family is so large that we are able to put on an entire 2-3 hour long show...and it's actually entertaining and many of them are truly talented!) 2d

kjrai Novel alert: A month ago I got a special needs student moved into my class and I was very stressed out about it. My class was already the hardest class I ever had. While there have been difficult moments, today we read a repetition poem about what a friend is. I told them after they highlighted the repetition they could draw a picture of someone who is a good friend like the poem described. That student handed me this and said, 'you're my best friend.' Then his mom wrote me an email saying, "whatever you are doing has reached him. He usually has issues with teachers (he thinks they don't like him and from experience it has been true). Thank you for being so patient and kind with my baby boy. He has had a hard time in school thus far and he actually likes going now, so thank you." This made this whole entire (most difficult ever) school year, 100% worth it. 1w

kjrai So much amazing happened today. I have completed my marathon "career" and went out with a bang. Today, for the first time, I ran an entire 26.2 miles without walking once, broke my personal record, and finished my last marathon! We got rain from miles 11-15, it was under 50 degrees the entire day and I was freezing, and I lost my music at mile 8. So many prayers were prayed! I am so so happy and am so grateful for Tina coming out to support me, my parents, and especially for Vanessa jumping in and running with and pacing me the last 6 miles. Couldn't have done it without y'all!! Now I'm ready to celebrate with a night out!!!! I've logged quite a few miles for 2.5 years but I can officially be happy with saying my racing days are over!!! @vdmiles3 @teanuuhh 2mon
