Midway into the period, there was a knock at the door and I looked out to see Millie, her mom and her sister holding the flowers above and a box. They came by to thank me for helping Millie these past four years. They claimed she would not be graduating without my help. I know that is not a true statement.
The flowers are fantastic and the box held the above trophy. I could only post a picture of the back because the front is engraved with my name and the family name. (If I ever learn to use photo shop I know I will be able to wipe the stuff I don't want to print out.) It is something that I will treasure forever.
My name is engraved in the star and the base has the following words:
Thank you for
your patience amd
dedication to teaching
Beautiful, simply beautiful. These are the things that keep you coming back every morning. :)
Good job! Hugs, trophies, flowers...the best reward is passing scores and students who have learned the material. I got a $10 movie gift card and a $25 Olive Garden gift card, but having these 2 young ladies pass the SOLs was my best gift. They both met with me on most Saturdays (since Thanksgiving)at the library -for free- while my youngest was at karate.
Such a coincidence: the word verification I need to type to publish this comment is "knogrow"
