Crayons and Tears


Miss Sarah, my most excellent student teacher, left us today, ready for her next adventure. There were a few tears…and sobs from one little fellow. I’m taking Dr. Seuss to heart tonight:  I will not cry because it’s over – I will smile because it happened.  I’ve made a new, wonderful friend, and there’s nothing sad about that.

Here are a few goodbye letters from the children.  Nothing like first grade authors!

“You just might graduate!”


Last week, Miss Sarah read a great book to the students.

Afterwards, they wrote letters to the main character in the story and then gathered old crayons for her to melt. This is what she gave them today using those crayons. Our Miss Sarah will be missed!
