seeing smiles and getting hugs every morning and afternoon
the hilarious things they would write and say
playing with them at recess tuesday/thursday
fun friday's every friday- usually spent on the playground
cards, notes, gifts, and pictures galore
getting a weekly note from a few students on the back of their spelling tests
caring not only for their education but also caring for them in all other ways
getting asked the funniest questions
city council every morning
times when things just clicked, love that
their cute/fun personalities
i could not have asked for a better first year of teaching. i absolutely adored my students and had such a great year. we learned a lot and played a little less, but all around had an amazing year!
collette and i at park daylast thursday(may 31), was the last day. we had a fun morning and then i gave them a little speech. i'm not usually very emotional but as i was talking to them one last time i got a little choked up. then i told them to come and and say goodbye and i had four girls start crying. well that brought out the tears in me. i hope they will look back on 3rd grade and have fond memories, i know i will.
