Every year in Technology specials, our students write a "Holiday Wish" story. They type it on the computer, add their own fonts and graphics, and print them.
The specials teacher put them in my mailbox and I handed them out to my students. I don't read them because I don't want to invade the kids' privacy. Some of them are very heartfelt and personal.
When I was finished passing them out, Emily ran up to me.
She handed me her story. "It's for you!"
I was in tears. I hugged Emily and told her it was the best Christmas gift I'd ever received from a student. How sweet and thoughtful?!
It meant the world to me that she devoted her wish to me.
Words can't express how grateful I am for her kindness and love.
Today was our last day before Winter Break. I pray that each one of my students has a very happy holiday season. I pray that each one stays safe while playing at home and traveling around the state/country.
I pray the same for each one of you as well.
