Love Letters

One morning this past year a student walked into class, excitedly ran up to greet me, and handed me an envelope. Unable to contain herself, she exclaimed “It’s a love letter!” not knowing what to expect, I opened the letter and it said “Ms Manore. I love you.” The best part: the students used sticker letters to write the message.

It truly was a love letter. Not in the traditional, mushy, romantic sense. But those kinders just adore their teachers and love to express it in writing. Last week, while I sat around recovering from my surgery, I had PLENTY of time to admire all of the end-of-year gifts from my students. The flowers and gift cards are so generous and always appreciated, but it was the writing of my students that touched my heart. I wanted to share a few of my “love letters” with you.

“Thank you for helping me learn.”

This one melts my heart.

“Your are loved and special and perfect.”
Among many other sweet sentiments.

 

One of my students even wrote me a poem. It was laminated and everything. I’m sure her mom helped to create the finished product, but I can tell that the words are direct sentiments from the 6 year old sweetie.

I love that she called me a “Real Princess”

 

Summer is here and I will savor every moment I have away from my buzzing, busy, crazy Kindergarten classroom. But I already miss my students.

Hi, I'm Maria.

I’m a former kindergarten teacher turned work-from-home mom. I still love sharing ideas and resources to make teaching easier, so you can focus on what really matters in the classroom. When I’m not working on the blog, you’ll find me chasing kids around the house with a cold cup of coffee in my hand (some things never change even once you’re out of the classroom!)
