I just finished my 12th year of teaching first grade. Do the math and you'll find my first students just walked across the stage in their caps and gowns - oh how they've grown into wonderful young men and women! A coworker (who also shared in the joy of her first class graduating) and I attended graduation and were SO proud to congratulate them all in person. I took my first grade class photo from 2004 and held it in this photo of my "little Nate". That bright smile has not changed, even though he's now a foot taller than me!
I used the awesome Bella Blvd "Star Student' collection - with Brenda's sketch:
I am also entering it into Rochelle's challenge:
I have those cute owls on my page :)
Thanks for stopping by - have a great weekend!
