I've always been that teacher who wanted ALL of her students to feel loved. I could've care less about their race, how rich or poor, or where they come from. ( and still don't) My love for them is true and genuine. I've mentioned many times how I show my students how much I care about them. One of those ways is a quick love note.
Once a week I make sure to write EVERY student in my class a love note. Guess what? It costs me NOTHING!! All I do is grab some sticky notes, a sharpie and the magic happens. Sometime they get love notes first thing in the morning, while they're at lunch, or when they're at large group. The point is that I want them to receive them when they least expect it.
So I know you're wondering about the tears of joy? Well I received a very sweet email this evening, (one that melted my heart.) One of my Fab Firstie parents sent me a message letting me know what she posted on Facebook and all the responses she received. Take a look.
