With barely more than a week left before my son's year of kindergarten ends, we had a potluck dinner hosted by his teacher. We took this opportunity to give her the quilt I made with artwork by all of her students. She was very touched by the card (printed below) and the quilt. It seemed that many of the children were equally as interested in what was done with the picture that they had drawn for me. It was a nice and somewhat bittersweet time.
You're kind & patient, energetic & inspirational, creative & compassionate.
Through your example, we learned so much more than our ABC's and how to count to 100. We learned to get along and to love one another.
You have kindled our imaginations for years of future learning.
You were our first teacher, and for that fact alone, you will forever be etched in our memories.
Thanks for the many great things you have brought into our lives this year.
