Today, during our class pizza party (which the children earned with great behavior!) I gave each child an achievement award.  They didn't know that was going to happen, but they were all thrilled, waiting to see what they were being recognized for.  (artistic expression, cooperation, enthusiasm, participation, kindness, gentleness, trustworthy and cheerful attitudes, etc ....)  After the party was over, one of the little boys came up to me and said "Ms Dawn, we sneaked into the writing center during the party.  I hope it's ok."  I was curious ... until I realized that they had a piece of construction paper behind their backs.  They had made an impromptu award for me ... for being a 'gud tejar'.  (hey, they're only 4 years old!  phonetically, I think their spelling ROCKS!!!!)  I melted right on the spot.  It was so bitter sweet .. they don't know that i have resigned yet ... and I love them so much!  Saying goodbye is going to be really really hard.  A good thing for my family, but I'll miss my 'new little' family too!  That award is going on my wall .. I'm going to frame it and hang it where everyone can see it ...  because it means so much to me!

What a lovely, lovely tribute to you and your teaching skills Ms. Dawn! I too would frame that and hang it where I could see it every day...that's a special honour and worth celebrating.

What an impact you have on others...at school, here, in all areas of your life. I'm so happy I've been able to get to know you, even just a little bit.

hugs,

Do-over,

That is so awesome. I imagine that it is hard to leave them, but you have many fond memories of the time spent with them. I bet this will be one of the best ones.

Best wishes to you.

Hugs, Karen

How wonderful!  I would frame it, too.  I know it will be hard to leave but wait until your child takes construction paper and writes, Gud Mommy on it!  You can hang them both side by side.

I told my class today that I won't be their teacher after the end of the month. One said "Well that is just the saddest thing I have heard in all my life!" Another gave me a hug. A little girl started to cry. it made my heart hurt ... I just love them so much!

that being said, DANG I am excited about being a full time mom again!!!!!!!!!!!!!
