this is why i teach

for the last couple of weeks
i had a student teacher doing her 2 weeks
of solo teaching
i was out of the classroom
and felt out of the loop
i missed connecting with my kiddos everyday
so i could not wait to return this week...
and thank goodness the week was fast!
i do love my students, but i also love two weeks off school!
so today, as i was flooded with gifts,
there was one card i could not get out of my mind...
i am not sharing to toot my horn,
but instead because this is the best card i have
ever received from a student...
take a look!

Dear Mrs. G,
Every morning you greet us with a bright smile and a sun-shiny face, and even if we don't show it, we love you for it. You always succeed in putting a smile on all of our faces and make learing fun!
6th grade is a very hard grade to teach, (partially because of all of us 6th graders bipolarized attitude all of the time.), but I think you're doing a pretty stellar job! Well I hope you like my presents and when you eat that ferrero rocher, think of me! Ha Ha

now how cute is that!?
i am off to write my thank yous and get them in the mail!
happy friday everyone!

Awwwww! That is so cute! I don't get ANY letters like that being an accountant! Usually just hate mail :)

That was so sweet! Love the WOW words of bipolarized and stellar! One of my girls gave me a sweet note and signed it "your best student" which I just thought was cute!

Kelly said...

Well, it's nice to know teachers really do appreciate the little notes our munchkins write!

Visiting from SITS, too.
