Long Time, No Blog

‘Tis the season.  The season of report cards and parent-teacher conferences.  The season of this veteran teacher staying at school until 5:00 most evenings just to keep afloat.  Of hurrying to get those holiday bulletin boards up because the season will be over in the blink of an eye.

‘Tis also the season of holiday miracles.  Like the first snow day of the year on Thanksgiving Eve.  Certainly thankful for that.  What follows is a random collection of a few of the many things I am thankful for…

The generosity of the families at school.  We had our first service project of the year, and we collected warm weather accessories for the Salvation Army.  #warmthiswinter

Talented friends.  Local author and dear friend Cynthia Dreeman Meyer visited and shared her book, “Merry Stirring Mice.”  She wanted to see it read by yours truly…she even took notes!  #proudandhonored

Creative kids.  Our second grade collaborated on a tree based on the classic book “Owl Moon.”  It will be part of the Morris Museum’s Storybook Forest display from December 18 to January 18.  #wemadetheowl

Involved parents.  For American Education Week, families were invited to their child’s classroom for a variety of activities.  In our class, they were taken on a tour of the classroom, led by their second grader. #verybusy

Then they settled down to listen to their child’s personal narrative, and assisted in the editing process. #thanksforthehelp

Enough with the hashtags.  Lots to be grateful for, and I am.
