Moving Up, Moving On

Today is our last day of school. My students will be moving on to second grade and I couldn’t be more proud! They have accomplished many things – big and small. They are builders and dreamers, and problem solvers. They are caring and brave. They can investigate new things and answer the question, “Why?”, and look at how things change over time. They know about being part of a community. They know how to leave the world in a better place. I leave today with a lot of love in my heart because I know these kids will do great things!

Recently, I read this quote  that really put the whole year in perspective for me.

“I believe that imagination is stronger than knowledge. That myth is more potent than history. That dreams are more powerful than facts. That hope always triumphs over experience. That laughter is the only cure for grief. And I believe that love is stronger than death.”
Robert Fulghum, All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten: Uncommon Thoughts On Common Things

 

To every student out there,   young or old, keep dreaming, keep believing in you! You can make a difference with some hard work and grit!
