Another school year has come and gone, and summer is upon us. As the saying goes, time flies! I’m very thankful that my family and I survived this past school year unscathed. We had drama and a few bumps along the way, but the things we learned from those situations made us stronger and wiser, and hopefully will prepare us for the things to come when my daughter Aria starts kindergarten and my son Nicolas enters second grade. However, as my kids stand here today with more confidence in their abilities to learn and perform, it is without a doubt that their teachers were a huge contributing factor in their development. I am very thankful for their love, sacrifice and dedication to my children, and to every child that was under their instruction and guidance. The thoughts and feelings of appreciation and gratitude are expressed in the following poem I wrote:

We love our teachers, yes we do
They are awesome and that is true
The lives they change, showing the way
For our little ones to be outstanding one day
We as parents know the heavy weight
Of guiding children in the narrow and straight
We willingly accept the help of loving teachers
Whose firm strong hands can support young curious fingers
With those firm hands they open doors
For hungry minds and eyes to explore
Teaching isn’t confined to only books and papers
Or test scores and complicated numbers
Rather, instilling a love for learning, a passion to succeed
Building confidence is what children need
Teachers can stoke the flame and inspire young lives
To aim for the stars, to hope and strive
Teachers are awesome and they are great
That is why we should celebrate!

A gift to Mrs. T, Nicolas' teacher

I am thankful to Mrs. T, Ms. S and Ms. G for loving on my kids and teaching them the tools to be a life long learner and to strive for what is good and noble. May Aria and Nicolas reflect the qualities you have instilled in their lives.
