I'm Back!

Wow, that was a long break from my blog.  It was a tough year!  But now it over and my summer is wonderful!  Here is a little video of the last day of school.  I couldn't wait for this moment to happen.  Now it's a thing of the past.......ahhhhhh!

I had a wonderful class of parents this past year! One parent was so thoughtful that she brought me dinner on the 2 evenings of my parent conferences this year.  I cherished that meal and was happy to accommodate any-time she wanted for a conference.  It was a pleasure chatting about her daughter. Here are a few pictures of a few gifts from other fabulous parents.
 Thanks Diana for this beautiful quilt.  It is something I will always cherish.  It will be hung permanently in my classroom.  Greg is a super student who is seated right beside me.
 Thanks Heather for everything including my new Smart Board this year.  This party basket made my day.   It was full of lots of fun stuff.   I love how Julia matches the basket with her clothes and her personality.  
Thanks for everything Jamie.  Your moral support saved me a  few times. Katie is quite a reader now and her math skills shine.

Some other favorite gifts from students were lots of love notes plus lots and I mean lots of chocolate.  I just love my chocolate.

What are some of your favorite end of the year moments?

I'm glad I'm back!  I've got so much to tell you.  Check back soon to find out about some fabulous new books that I can't wait to share with kids.

Have a splendid day!
