Today I had my 7th & 8th graders write letters to someone they were thankful for. Most wrote to their mom, dad, or best friends. One student wrote to me...
It brought tears to my eyes to read it. This particular young lady pulls at my heart daily. I want to take her home and keep her safe from the crazy that surrounds her. She has been having a hard time at home lately. She came to my office about a week ago because she needed to talk. She told me a lot. More than any 7th grader should ever have to know/see/hear.
Her letter to me today thanked me for listening to her, among many other things.
I am thankful for teaching in a school that allows me to share the love of Jesus with all the children in my classroom!
