Teacher Appreciation Week: She Made My Day
My students frequently draw me things and I am always touched by this. It's Teacher Appreciation week and I was especially grateful to receive this special note and drawing from a 3rd grader named Lily. She just finished doing a fantastic job on a complicated project. At the start of the period, she did not agree with my compliment of how she rendered the background in her painting. She went back and made adjustments to her liking and was really happy with her results. Perhaps just talking about the background was the support she needed to change it to her liking? I don't know but I was very happy to receive such a thoughtful note from her.
