Just What I Needed

I received a small silver coin this past week from a kindergarten student.  The front is cute with ABC Teacher as the text with an apple.  The quote on the back was just what I needed to read in the hurried and harried rush  the end of the year brings.  I've found myself wishing I could stop time and bottle up where we are, as we finish our kindergarten year together.  Right now, it's all beautiful and my heart is happy from spending time with these 44 students and my heart is sad to let them go.

"A teacher is a gift from God, 
with the power to mold a child's character and mind, 
which is worth all the riches in the world." 

I think I can, I think I can, I think I can -
say goodbye to each group with smiles, hugs, and tears.
I can't wait to join many of you on summer vacation.


  1. I think the best gifts are words of inspiration or words of thanks from our students. These words seem to suit you perfectly! And, I too always have a hard time as the year ends. Hope you are enjoying summer.
