Yesterday my co-teacher asked if I could stop by her classroom after 2:00. That’s not an unusual request; often it ends up that I help explain some mathematical concept or grammatical glory.
But I walked in to see a table full of bees!
It was a surprise party my co-teachers pulled together to say thank-you for my work as principal. The party was bee-themed, which was my classroom theme for the year, too.
I received gifts from the students, cards and bookmarks and letters and poems. They listed things they appreciated about me. It was very special.
My co-teacher had gotten coffee for us from Dunkin Donuts, and she gave us a gift card that Steph can benefit from. That was kind.
Everything was lovely, but I think I like the bookmarks the most.
It is nice to feel special and loved.
