May 2020// Last week of school. You got this.


It has been a privilege to have you all in our class this year. I have been so blessed to be your teacher and to have had the opportunity to get to know each one of you. We are experiencing difficult times and you have stepped up and pushed through. You have worked hard this year and I am so incredibly proud! I wish you the absolute best as you move up to 8th grade. I hope you all drop by to say hey next year! Especially, to sign my yearbook! Thank you for making our class enjoyable :)
