blessings As the school year is (finally) coming to a close, I can’t help but look back and smile.  Even in the most difficult days, my students have been such blessings in my life, whether by encouraging me with positive affirmation or by speaking the brutally honest truth.  Here are a few of my favorite quotes from this semester…

“You know, when I pay attention, I actually learn things.”

“Are you in a bad mood today?”

“Miss, I really appreciate everything you do for me.”

“Yesterday was fun, but today is so boring.”

“Miss, did you practice on the Internet or something?  You were like really good today.”

Through the ups and downs, my students have both challenged me and inspired me.  I will always treasure these students who have spent this exciting first year of teaching with me, and I will always cherish the blessings they have been to me.
