I just wanted to send one quick final note to thank you for sharing your students with us.
As a teacher, there’s nothing better than having a roomful of kind, funny, determined kids — and that is what you sent us this year. There weren’t many days where I wasn’t impressed by the kids on the Gnomes team, that’s for sure — and next year’s group definitely has big shoes to fill.
I think what I’ll remember the most about this group was their willingness to be involved — whether that meant joining Guys Read or Sugar Kills, crafting a terrific novel or grant project, or throwing a pretty phenomenal baby shower for Mrs. Barrow. If participation is a sign of commitment, your kids are some of the most committed kids I’ve ever worked with.
With warmest wishes that your track out is a restful time with family and friends.
PS: Please tell your students that I still smell like barbecue. My wife is going to be THRILLED, I’m sure. ; )
