Dear parents and students,
Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for all of the love and kindness that you have sent to me during Teacher Appreciation week! From the coffee gift cards (LOVE), to the sweet moms who brought me lunch, to the parents who sent in balls, fun cups and coozies for my favorite sports teams, you have each made my week so special. Today, however, is my FAVORITE day! The day that the kids take the time to write me letters about why they appreciate me. I spent much of my morning (and afternoon, because, “Ooops! I forgot to check my folder!”) wiping away happy tears.
This class has stolen a big part of my heart. They are my first group of “big kids.” I am SO PROUD of how hard they have worked and how many goals that they have met and surpassed. They have blown away my expectations! They make me smile and laugh every day, and they have given me a few more grey hairs. I love each and every one of them for their eagerness to learn and reach their own goals. They are amazing children, and it is because they have parents like you, that they will all do great things one day.
Thank you again for your time, your kindness, and your generosity this week. I am truly humbled and grateful.
