End of School

I finished my school year on May the 29th. The day before I got out of school the kids had a field day and I had the enjoyable...and wet chance to be in the dunk tank. My 6th grade math students had a great time aiming for me to get dunked. I won't post pictures...for my own sake. ;) Here are some pictures of the 6th grade graduation we had on the last day of school.

A bunch of my crazy kids...just waiting for things to get started.My student Jacque Kass...great girl, great student!This is Nick...this is my tough kid who was hard for me all year in class, then at the end, he came to me the last day of school, and hugged me over and over...telling me how much he would miss me, and he spent the whole day in my room. It made all the hard days worth it...when he expressed how much he really appreciated me as a teacher.
Oh boy, these are all my crazy boys. Nate S., Issak, Austin, Nate C., just to name a few of the crazies I taught. :) These are the boys who charged me to turn on and off the lights during the school year, and always kept my class VERY entertaining.

Also in the pic., my good friend and colleague Susie. I couldn't have made it through this year without her. She was always willing to listen to me, and she gave me great ideas throughout the year, to help me from going completely crazy. She is so awesome! I am going to miss her a ton!
Taylor and I....and Austin J. What a bunch of goofs are we. Who's idea do you think this picture was?
All my wonderful girls I taught. Haleigh, Ashtyn, Darby, and Karla. They were always helpful, and wonderful in my class. I will truly miss the blessings I received from teaching these awesome kids!
Nathan L., Geovanny D. (Geo), and Alex M. What funny guys! Geo never once payed attention in my class...except for the time I made him stand up in front of everybody and try to teach. He at least behaved a little better after that. :)
