You can just see her in this picture cheering on the boys at there impromptu sports day.
Mrs A is so nice and Milo just adores her, all the kids love her and run for hugs when she opens the door to let them into class, she is the teacher that you dream your kids have as their first teacher and someone who will always be remembered as they get older.
Now what do you get someone like this to say goodbye and thank you. I thought of many different things but finally decided on one of these
accompanied by this poem which I found on the internet.
A candle is like a teacher
Who first provides the spark
That kindles love of learning
In children's minds and hearts.
Like a burning candle
Teachers light the mind
Enriching lives and futures
By the sharing of their time.
So when you light this candle
May its glow convey to you
For all the things you do.
Milo also made her a card in which he also put a photo of himself and a packet of sunflower seeds ( all his idea).So this afternoon he trotted off into class with his little bag of presents along with his classmates carrying their presents.
When I went to collect him after school I got really upset when I walked into an empty classroom, with the walls all bare and all the toys put away. Mrs A thanked me for the present and said that she doesn't normally cry but this present was so lovely she had shed some tears, well this set me off and I just welled up, I couldn't speak so just hugged her and muttered " thank you" . After she gave Milo a hug and told him that she would miss him I just about ran out of the class trying my hardest not to let any tears fall. So now she probably thinks I'm some kind of mad woman!
Well now I've recomposed myself - again - I thought I would also show you these
continuing my new found appreciation of colour, 3 new tops for the summer. I know the middle one is still black but the embroidery on it is very colourful. Hub was quite surprised when I showed him.
Now let the holidays begin..
