    Today was my last day with kids. The parents and I threw a surprise breakfast for the kids, I finished reading Charlotte's Web and then we watched the movie. At 1pm, our principal ceremoniously lowers the flag and kids then go home...

    3 of my little girls were in TEARS, saying they were going to miss me so much that their "hearts hurt"...how cute it that???

    And then. a parent of one of my students came up to me, hugged me and started SOBBING!!!! I had her older daughter in my second grade class back in 2002-2003 and had the little sister in my class this year. She proceeded to tell me that I have had such a positive impact on her daughters, an impact on her on how to parent, and she wanted me to know that because of me, she felt her daughters would do great things with their lives...sniff sniff...

    and THAT is why I teach:)
