A mother's love...

Hello everyone and Happy Mother's Day!

I watched this video last January and still think of it.  I thought this is a great day to rewatch it and send out a hope that everyone tells their mom "I love you" today!






Happy Teaching!

Happy New Year everyone,
I recently viewed this video on a friends facebook page and wanted to share it with you all.  It brought me to tears.  Although it is directed at middle school kids, I thought it was poigent reminder of the passage of time.

 



Happy New Year and
Happy Teaching!
