As I stood back and looked at my classroom, a place I spend almost 10 hours a day during the school year, I realized I like the environment my students and I have co-created. It's cozy, inviting, and tranquil. I am blessed to have a job I love on most days, and I get to work with some amazing people. My students are eager, determined, and full zest. They make me smile. They make me scream. And most of the time, they make me proud.
Gratitude abounds for the priveleged, sacred space I call Mrs. Shade's Fourth Grade Classroom.
Parents beamed as their precious kiddos showed off all their hard work!
