Today I went in to school and decided to leave a personal message for each and every child in my classroom. Our classroom is a very busy learning space and we have many children learning at different levels and in different ways.
I can be crazy, unconventional, structured but most of all I am dedicated to making sure that the year these kids have in my classroom is the best year ever.
As I moved from seat to seat emotion came over me. Tears ran from my eyes as I reflected on each and every child I had the pleasure to teach. I push them to their limits as they push me to mine. I make them feel uncomfortable in learning as they make me know they can do it.
Each child will arrive tomorrow morning to a message that I have written from the heart. I hope they know how much I appreciate them and I believe in them.
