I love teaching the entire year, but as I'm nearing the home-stretch. This time is extra special. We're nearing State Testing time, deadlines to finish assessments, and all the paperwork and prep that comes with closing another school year. Teacher Appreciation can't come at a better time! It always revitalizes me and inspires me to finish the year strong. It's great to be appreciated by my kiddos, their parents, PTA, and our community. Speaking of community, I got a free burrito at Chipotle tonight, for being a teacher (SCORE!!!)!
Keep doing what you're doing, you're almost at the end! Enjoy the last few weeks with your kiddos. Love them, embrace them, celebrate their progress and success, and give them the tools so that they will be successful in the next grade.
