1st Year Down

I am currently sitting in my condo in Florida, eating powdered-sugar donuts, listening to a movie that Austin and Nile are watching and I was thinking about how much I miss my middle school students.

I finished my first year of teaching and I can honestly say it was one of the most amazing experiences of my life. I have learned that the only "disability" a person can have is their attitude. My students have challenges and trials but that doesn't mean they hold back. I believe that they will become even more successful than imaginable because their situations have made them stronger. I hope that I have given them the confidence to feel like they can do whatever they want in life, no matter what the challenge is. And I am convinced that they have taught me so much more than I will ever teach them. I am so incredibly grateful for their loving hearts and their ability to make me smile every single day. I am going to miss them this summer but before I know it, it'll be time for school to start all over again :) Happy Summer Everyone!!
