day 289: letter to my student

Dear G.V.,

I hope you remember how much fun we had in school this past year and how hard you worked.  I hope you are practicing writing your name all by yourself, and that you are learning more letters.

Remember how much fun we had at our hundred-day party?  You looked so nice in your fancy dress!  And we plugged in that disco ball and played music and danced.

Your English got so good during the school year.  Are you practicing with your brother?  Please speak as much as possible so you can get even better at it.  You are a fast learner.

I hope you are having a good Summer vacation so far.  Maybe I will come visit you at your apartment sometime soon.  I miss your happy face.

You are my little abuelita and I miss you.

Love,
Miss Karen

Sounds like a special one!

That is so sweet. Oh, that every teacher could be like you.
I would have given anything to have had a teacher that loved one of my difficult children.

Bless you.

That was so tender. I hope some teachers rememebered my children in that way.
Smiles and Blessings.

I love that you ran into her today - how serendipitous! The tenderness of this sweet post makes me smile. I hope my daughters' future teachers care half so much as you do.

I bet she's at home writing crayon embellished letters to you too.
