I bought mine from Staples Office Supply. To make it work, you slide the edge of your gathered paper into the slot (just like a stapler) only you need to slide it in as far as it can go and then punch down firmly with the handle. It is fairly easy to punch as long as you don’t over do it on the paper…

Every time I think I know everything I need to know about teaching young children, God says, "Hold on a minute!" and gives me a new challenge.

Let me tell ya...

With each new challenge that you overcome, you will find yourself better equipped and more passionate about teaching young children.

God didn't call wimps to lead, teach, or care for His children. Nope, he has high expectations, so get ready. You will have to give your very best but after teaching for over 30 years, I can tell you that it is a wonderful and rewarding journey.

Whenever your calling feels hard, just remember, 'He who began a good work in you (and in the children you serve) will be faithful to complete it.'
