Dear Future Scholars,
I first want to start by saying I’m so excited to be your teacher! You may not see it, but I’ve been preparing for you well before my roster was delivered. Today I while seeing some of you I got a little misty eyed. Why?! I want to be the best teacher I can be to each and every one of you! I don’t have a long term plan as to how, but this I do have….I promise to come to school every day with a loving heart. I will try my hardest to not let my personal struggles whatever they may be interfere with your education. With that being said, know that I am human and there may be days I don’t feel so well, all that I ask is that you treat me as kindly as I treat you. (Worry not, I don’t stay down long!). The favor will be returned because I know that even though you are a child you have “bad” days too. This classroom will be your safe haven. A place where you can learn, make mistakes, and ask those burning questions even if they may seem a little “silly’. I want to make 2nd grade a year you will always look fondly on. There will be things you don’t like to do (like homework), but there will be lots you will love (like all the STEM activities!). My greatest and year long objective is to not just to grow your brains, but to help further develop you as good citizens. The world is a cruel place and I want each and every one of you to make it better with love! We are a family. Sure, no one REALLY is family but we are. We will spend the majority of our days with each other. It is highly likely that at some point in the year you will mistakenly call me “mom”.(Hahaha, happens like clockwork). I will tell my own friends and family about my new “kids”. I will pull teeth, wipe tears, and give high fives. You will stick up for each other and coach one another through tough times. You will develop friendships that will last beyond this year. June will come and we will look up and realize just how much we do love one another. I can’t promise this year will be perfect, but I do promise it will be amazing!
