Thanksgiving with Qkids
Hello! My name is Tina Croft and I have been teaching online for almost 2 years. I joined the online teaching community when I became an empty nester and moved to Washington DC leaving my job at a University behind.
My family: Husband (Robert), 2 amazing daughters, and a dog (Vashti). My daughters are in college; Hannah is in Grad school in Tennessee (Go Flames) and Sarah is a junior at Ole Miss (Hotty Toddy!)
I love to read, swim, play the piano, be outdoors, and spend time with family and friends.
Thanksgiving with Qkids
T–eaching and Turkey:
Rise at 5 am – turn on the oven to bake that morning breakfast feast while you teach your morning Qkids classes. You will be done just in time to enjoy the hot breakfast and get that turkey cooking!
Hosting family for the holiday is always such a joy. A great opportunity to share how Qkids has been going!
Traditional pie for the holiday and Momo likes to count apples too!
It is always a joy to make new friends with the children and families when teaching!
The staff at Qkids are the kindest in the industry! They truly care about every teacher and student!
When you get that one student who really makes you smile! He was so proud of his Momo!
Momo can run, jump, walk, and swim!
Thanksgiving is a time when you GROW – 3 pant sizes after that big family meal
Inviting others to join Qkids continues to be such a pleasure!
and a little extra cash never hurts
Our Qkids characters and their families know that vegetables are good for your health; eat up!
The Indians (Native Americans) are a big part of our American Thanksgiving story. We are thankful for them.
Working for Qkids will help you discover a whole new world; one full of excitement, eagerness to learn, community, and knowledge of a new culture.
With gratitude, I say THANK YOU to Qkids, the children and their families, and fellow teachers. It warms my heart this Thanksgiving to reflect on the impact you all have made in my life and the life of my family.
