Years have come and gone, and I've been teaching for eight years. What I can't believe is that I still have so much to learn and how much there is to learn.
I'm still learning about kids and their sometimes scary worlds. I'm still reading new books and finding new things to teach.
Natalie will graduate high school this year, and we'll be sending her off to college. It's funny that I never really wanted to think about that and now I'm scheduling senior pictures!
This fall, I will have some of my first "Oklee 7th Graders" back in my classroom as Juniors. Time marches on! I've been peeking at their progress through the last two years as they pass on to Mr. Swenson's classroom. They are still the energetic bunch from four years ago. The only difference is the stubble on their chins and the shade of the lip gloss.
