It takes a village to run a classroom.
It's important to thank the members of your village.
Today I take a minute to do just that.
From the custodians who sweep up the scraps and talk football and home improvement,
to the resource friends who make sure
you have the best read alouds,
the best classroom setup,
and are the best support system
a girl could ask for
(including emergency pie on Saturday nights).
From the family and friends
who are patient and willing to help,
to the parents
who write notes like
"no worries" and "thank you."
From the teammates who say
today is the day
you step outside
the building to get some lunch
to the secretaries and nurse that tell me
"No question is too silly. Thanks for asking. I'll help you."
From the support team
who brainstorms and brings fidgets
and puppets and posters
to the students,
who forgive my mistakes
("You said meet me on the table instead of carpet!")
and draw me beautiful pictures
and remind me
why I come to school
