End of Year

Last day of school!? I can hardly believe it already. There is really no job I would rather be doing. Yes, there are challenges and setbacks, but in the long run the rewards are worth it all. It’s amazing to see the students grow and change. This year working with the fourth and fifth graders has been full of joy and surprises. There was definite growth in math and reading, but they like me need to keep practicing our writing. We did have fun writing each our own “fractured” fairy tale. Imagine The Three Pigs written with a Scrap Junkyard Dealer and three vintage automobiles?! Or Little Red Riding Hood using the theme “ Don’t bait the Bears”?
Next year I want to do more non-fiction writing with . Hopefully we will be ready for some blogging. That’s a chore for me this summer, to figure out the details.

  1. It is an amazing way to spend our days! 😊 I just finished my 35th year as an elementary school teacher and have no current plans to retire. There is more to teach and more to learn. With all the challenges it really has been an extraordinary way to invest my life! Enjoy the summer to be refreshed and inspired!
