dear trimester 1: you're done! exams are graded. final grades are in. i am officially done with you...and on to the next. dear paris: i am so proud of you for finally going back to school! your first week of classes is done and i couldn't be happier for you! keep up the hard work :) dear next week: please be kind. i'm going on an overnight field trip with my students to see some sea turtles and their eggs. i am more than excited but please have everyone survive in one piece! (including myself). dear mother nature: i don't mind the rain everyday, in fact i kind of like it. but can it please wait until after the school day ends! being that all of our "hallways" are outside makes it kind of hard not to get wet when changing classrooms. dear katherine: thanks so much for having me on your blog (sense)story perception this week! you can check out my writer of the week interview here and my guest post here. enjoy!
