This is the second time in my 21 year teaching career that I haven't been able to start school with my class. I had to have colon resection surgery on July 27th. I had prayed I would be healed enough to start school with my class, but I was so weak and still hurting. I had a wonderful substitute. Mrs. Martin is a retired school teacher and did a marvelous job with my class. Today was my first full day back. It was so wonderful to be back with my precious students again. They melt my heart. I had one boy come up to me and tell me "I really miss you when you are gone." He has totally won my heart.
Please check back often to see all the fun we are having this year in first grade.
