Some girls decorating one of the cakes brought in for me. Mm, cake.
Food carnage and gifts taking over my desk. (The blue milk crate is supposed to be there; that's my stock of test pr@p materials.)
A handknit, huge squooshy scarf and matching hat from my birthmom. Jules won't be cold this winter!
An acrostic poem about me, from a student:
M--makes EL@ a time to remember
S--super in teaching
C--cares about education
A letter in a card, from a student:
"Dear Ms. C,
Over the past two months, you have taught the class and myself a lot of things. Sometimes you do it in a fun way so it doesn't seem boring to other kids. Within the box contains a prize for being the best teacher ever. It also contains a gift for your special B-day. I hope you enjoy them!
