Can it really be?

Can it really be that tomorrow is the last day of my first year of teaching! I can't believe it!

This year has been one that has taught me more about myself than I ever thought possible. These children have all touched me and blessed me in their own unique way, and for that I know they will always hold a special place in my heart. As I sit here thinking about my twenty precious students I find myself welling up with tears. I have been overcome with waves of emotions this past week and I know tomorrow will be no different as I say goodbye to "my kids," my colleague's, my classroom, and my school.

Here are just a few pictures of my classroom and my kids throughout the year.

Class of 2021
I love these kids!
