The Best Kids In Town

'Tis the season for Parent/Teacher Conferences and I LOVE them. It is such a pleasure to brag about the kids to their parents and see the delight in their eyes -- the kids and the parents!

Now, everyone who has ever attended school, even for one day, would know it was a big fib if I said everything at school was perfect every day, but most days are. :) -- It is wonderful to meet with parents and visit about the strengths of each child and the ways to best meet the needs of those with challenges. It is also heartening to see the concern and care parents take when they leave busy schedules to come to school and support our classroom.

I'm sure that I have the BEST KIDS IN TOWN all in my classroom!

Happy Fall,


  1. I love teaching six year olds! They have a zest for life and are learning so many things quickly. I know my mom's favorite grade to teach was first grade. She's taught every grade from K-6.

    You are September's Wordfull Wednesday winner! I'm posting the prize tomorrow (9/30) at 1 PST. I think you'll like it. =) Please e-mail me your mailing address so we can get it shipped out to you asap. chocolateonmycranium [at] live [dot] com


  2. I popped over here after seeing a cute pair of the mittens you made at Chocolate on my Cranium. I enjoyed my visit here and just wanted to say that you seem like such an awesome teacher. I have met teachers who dread the long day of parent-teacher conferences (and I do understand why), but you seem to have a true love for your students. I'm so glad that there are teachers like you out there spending most of the day with our children.


Your thoughts are always welcome!
