Celebrating Endings {5-30-15}

Another week down and another chance to celebrate life with Ruth Ayres.  Thanks, Ruth!
Yesterday was our last day of school.  It was very bittersweet.  I truly enjoyed this group of students and will miss them.  Their spirit was like no other group I've ever had.  They worked hard, embraced a growth mindset, and supported each other's learning journey.  I would often hear  "Way to go" or spontaneous applause would break out in support of a student's success.  I didn't teach them this.  I didn't need to.  It's just a part of who they are and I will miss that.
What are you celebrating this week?

  3. This photo captures an amazing moment. You announced that one of your students was leaving for the day and moving. One student yelled, "Group hug!" They charged the student with open arms and...the phot was taken. Congrats on such a successful school year!

  10. I bet you did teach them that, maybe not with those exact words but with your actions and attention
