Little Things

Tomorrow is my last day at school. My desk is covered with sweet notes and drawings. So many emotions…thoughts feel muddled before I even write them down. But I’m going to give it a try!

Yesterday, two fourth-grade boys brought me handmade Freddie and Eli puppets to take home.

This morning, a third-grade girl gave me a tiny handmade envelope. Open it! A miniature note was tucked inside. ❤️

Several friends in one class came prepared, each with carefully folded Kleenex. 😢

This afternoon, I noticed one of my first-grade students reaching for me and motioned her to come over. She gave me a hug. I told her I was going to miss her.

This student is so quiet. It occurred to me that I had never heard her speak. I would love to hear your sweet voice.

She looked up with her big brown eyes-I miss you. Talk about melting my heart. 🥰

It really is the little things.

  1. Kelley, I can’t stop my tears for you. I had no idea you were leaving…I’m so absent here. Your gifts are so precious. I know how hard it is to leave and what a legacy you have left to your students. Those little things truly are the big things. They definitely grow big things. You’re such an amazing teacher and lady. I’ll be praying for you and supporting you from here. Your gifts are precious and it will be an unforgettable day just as it’s been such a beautiful experience for you. I’m proud of you, Kelley and have so much respect for you. Love and prayers. 🙏🏻💕🥰
