When I walked Katie into your classroom this morning and saw what an amazing learning environment you’ve created for your students, I was overwhelmed with delight! The colorful decorations and the sheer number of grade-appropriate manipulatives available to the children were an impressive sight. And the way you greeted each child at the door of your classroom as he/she arrived, was so sweet and kind. It fills my heart with happiness to know that Katie will spend her first-grade year with you as her teacher.
Thank you for everything.
