I heard from a colleague that her student’s mom was battling cancer. I made a prayer shawl and gave it to the little girl at school. Two days later I got this text.
A miracle to Celebrate!
The end of the school year is such a bittersweet time. I receive notes from students and parents that lift me up and make me cry. I celebrate the connections in my lives with my students and their families.
My letter from Matthew included this awesome line, “To say I’ll miss you would be like saying you kind of like poetry.”
And from his mom, “You are so much more than Matthew’s teacher. You are his mentor, his confidante, his cheerleader, and one of his biggest supporters!”
Summer is here! Those long-stretched-out-open days full of possibility. I celebrate the possibilities.
