So I cried today...a bit!

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!
