The school year is coming to an end! :) or :(

I have mixed emotions about this school year ending. I am so very blessed to have been given the best class in Desoto County. Not only are they brilliant, but the kindest, coolest 8 year olds ever. When God gave me this job, I never knew what a blessing they would be. Yes, it has been difficult juggling everything, but I know it is my calling. Nathan has done remarkably well at Oak Grove--all A's! Mari Morgan struggled at first, but I believe she has grown up through the process. She too is an all A student! So proud of my kiddos, and so blessed to be an employee of Desoto County Schools! Go Tigers!

Yes, I have already cried in the classroom at the thought of them leaving me. I can't imagine what the last day of school will be like for me. I will need lots of tissues!! :( I plan to attach this poem to their end-of-the-year gift from me. It says exactly what I want them to know. I plan to give them each a small potted flower.

I've worked with your flower,
And helped it to grow.
I'm returning it now,
But I want you to know...
This flower is precious,
As dear as can be.
Love it, take care of it,
And you will see...
A bright new bloom,
With every day.
It grew and blossomed
In such a wonderful way.
In September just a bud,
January, a bloom;
Now a lovely blossom
I'm returning in June.
Remember, this flower,
As dear as can be,
Though rightfully yours,
Part will always belong to me!

I love my class of 2010-11!!!
