This is it. The last week of school. It's been an honor to teach your children this year. I've watched them grow so much these past several months. They're some of the kindest, most accepting, creative, loving, empathetic students I've ever known. They truly give me hope for the future. I'm going to miss this class so much. I know they're going to do an amazing job next year.
