I came upon a perfect quote today. As I read it I had feelings of happiness/joy and sadness all at the same time....
"What makes teaching worth it? When you get to the end of the year and see how much they've changed and grown. That makes teaching worth it."
That and so much more....the daily stories, hugs, laughs, challenges, and memories.
I have truly enjoyed my fantastic first graders (soon to be super second graders) and I wish you all a fun summer.
