This is why we do what we do...

This is a letter I received in my email today from one of last year's preschoolers...this IS why I get up each day...

(Dictated by Devon and typed by her mommy word for word.)
Hello Mrs. S,
I love you. I am having a good time in kindergarten and my teacher, Mrs. R, wants to know how I got to be so smart. I told her you helped me last year. She goes to my church just like you do. My bus ride is good but my bus driver screams a little. We do lots of fun things and next year we are going to have recess which means playing outside on the playground. And next year we are going to go into first grade. I hope the kids in your classroom are good to you.
Love,
Devon

So sweet! Why no recess in kindergarten? That seems like an essential part of getting them through the day.
Ella makes me dictate emails for her and they are always so cute.

Wonderful. Makes you feel great, doesn't it!? I have a quote on the wall in my office so that I never forget what an important role we as teachers play in the lives of children. It says:
I TOUCH THE FUTURE. I TEACH.

Aww how sweet!! To make that hat, it looks like a regular had but the top is cut and theres an extra strip tied around it to make the knot and keep it closed at the top. I'll try to post the close up I took when I'm not on the laptop.
