If you were to scroll through my blog posts from previous Novembers, you would see similar themes in the entries written around this time of year. Posts about how grateful I am to spend my days with your children; for the support this community gives to public education; for the privilege of partnering with you in raising good people. This year is no exception.
It is, I think, only natural to pause and reflect on the multitude of gifts for which I am grateful. And your child is right up there on my list. Being a teacher in Spring Lake is a gift. And coming to work is a joy every single day. Well, maybe not EVERY single day.......but 99% of the time at least!! So thank you for trusting me with YOUR most precious gifts. I am grateful to spend my days with them.
