It's time to link up with Michelle at Big Time Literacy for Sunday Letters.
I am not having fun. I am ready for you to go away so I can spend time preparing lessons, loving my children, and cleaning my home. I am sick of aches, coughs, sneezes, sore throat, and fatigue. I have packed your bags. Please do not come back anytime soon.
Sick and Tired,
one worn out momma
Dear Singles Awareness Day,
I'm so glad you are done and over with. I am so grateful that I have my students and my kids to show me love, but there is still a sting that I have no special sweetie on this "special" day.
Until Next Year,
Single Teaching Momma
Dear Little Punky,
There are so many things I want to say to you. I am so proud of the young lady you are becoming. I am a little sad that I can't call you my Punky anymore because it "embarrasses" you. But I am so proud of how mature you are becoming. I love your ability to put aside your own ideas for the good of all. You will be an asset wherever you go in life.
with love and respect,
your adoring mother
Dear PRIDE Committee:
I am so excited to have books that my broad range of readers will be able to read and enjoy. Thank you so much for your interest in our little school. It makes such a big difference.
One grateful teacher
Dear Outspoken Teacher Gab Group Teacher,
It is harsh and hurtful that you say things like.... I can't believe that any teacher would request books when there are so many grants out there and things like title one funding. First of all, title one funding in our district is not something that I have any input into. Secondly, Why wouldn't you share those wonderful grants and other ways to get the things we need for our classrooms if you are going to taunt the long list of teachers who, like myself, do not know how to get these resources?
Feeling more than a little put out,
A teacher in a title one school who would still put books on her list
Dear Emotional Carrie,
Perhaps it is the cold/flu that you are battling, but it's okay to be emotional. Just let those tears roll, it will make you a better person for much longer in the future. Follow your heart, let those things that bring tears be the passion that drives you and changes you.
Cheering you on,
Your emotional inner voice
