You make my day.
Ask anyone I talk to on a daily basis and at some point in the conversation you will come up. Sometimes you drive me crazy with your talking, not listening, and act like a fool but I love you for all of those reasons even if I get moody.
Sometimes I just stop to look at you and your peers and I see you doing amazing things, so amazing that my heart swells up and I want to cry with happiness. I see you being a good friend, a respectful human, a sweet student, a good person, and just an amazing kid.
I also see you on your hard days when you are tired, stressed, sad, mad, annoyed, or crying. Those days are hard and when I see that, I go home and take those feelings with me so you don't have to be alone in your darker days.
I love you my quiet student who barely talks in class, my loud student who is never quiet, my student who is annoyed with my class, and my student who looks forward to my class each day.
You are unique in your own way, you are good, you are kind, you are amazing. As I think about next year when you move on to 8th or 9th grade, I get really sad. I have taught a lot of kids over my teaching career and this year has been one of the best I have had (if not the best).
Each year brings me a new experience and a new love of teaching. This year I have felt so much love from all of Los Lunas Middle School but especially you my students. On my hard days, you were kind, you were caring. On days when I wasn't feeling like the best teacher, you made me see why I get up each and every day to do this job.
You are my inspiration every single day and I will always care and love you as long as I am around. I can't wait to see what amazing things you do in the future. I love you my amazing student and I am so proud of you.
Until next time,
