My two older boys have had the privilege of having the same wonderful kindergarten teacher. This is her last year before she retires after 37 years of teaching! And all at the same school, I believe. Even our school principal had her as his kindergarten teacher! Although we'll be sad to see her go, she definitely deserves to begin this new chapter of life. I had the honor of going in once a week to volunteer in her class, this year with my kindergartner, and when my oldest was there. She is truly one of the most genuine, caring, nurturing teachers I've ever met. Both my boys love her. I made her this piece to say thank you. Even though it turned out a little bit bizarre, I really like the quote!
