Happy Thanksgiving

As I think of the things I am thankful for in my life, I immediately think of my parents.  Through out my life, my parents have been there to support and guide me.  They encouraged me to accept and celebrate the differences in people as well as their similarities.  They raised me to  be an independent thinker and to use my strengths to improve my life as well as the lives of others.   Maybe these are the things lead me to Summers-Knoll.

I am thankful to to be a teacher at  Summers-Knoll.  Here I am able to be the type of teacher and person I want to be.  I am able to use my talents and creativity in an unrestrictive setting.  I have the freedom and flexibility to create a classroom that to meet the needs of the children in my class.  I am able to work with an amazing group of educators who encourage and inspire me.

Tuesday, the children made bread to contribute to their Thanksgiving feast.  Hope you enjoy it, (even if it doesn't make it to Thursday).

I hope everyone has a safe and happy Thanksgiving.
