I've been thinking about the event going on the last few days, month, and year. There isn't a word to describe how I feel about all of the things that have been going on in our country but to sum it up- It shouldn't be this way.
There is one thing that I know-love and kindness always win. It never hurts to be kind and love someone. We need one another. Now is the time to show the world that we can be kind and loving despite our differences. Really though, don't our differences actually make us pretty cool and unique? I think so.
As you enter this school year my dear students, know that your teachers are loving, caring, and kind. We became teachers because we love teaching and inspiring kids year after year. We love you and we are here for you my dear students.
Brad Montague (who is one of my favorite people) said "Be who you needed when you were younger" and I know when I was younger I needed loving, caring, and kind teachers. I promise you that I will do my best and I know that my fellow teachers will also do their best to be the person you need this year.
We love you all my dear students.
Until next time my beloved students,
