I hope everyone had a great break spent with family and friends. I know I did :). I had some time to reflect over break and I just want to say how thankful I am for all of my students and their parents. While these children are only in my room for 10 months, they are your walking legacy forever. I only hope to help them along the way when ever they need me. They make me smile in some way every day and for that, I am thankful. They are kind to each other and are so smart! It gives me hope for the future. Thank you for allowing me to help influence your child. I am so grateful.
