Having a hard day at school can mean a lot of things. It is emotional, it is crazy, it is so stinking busy but today when I was totally spent there was a ray of light. This is my 4th year at my school and for the first time I have a group of students that I taught graduating from 5th grade. I received a letter in my mailbox today from a former student. I made the mistake of reading it out loud to my class. Tears then followed. It is so easy to forget the impact that we as teachers make.
I know it is hard to read so I blew up the section that turned on the flood gates:)
Everyone deserves a 2nd chance!
Thank YOU Lizze in 5th grade. You truly made my day!
