We have arrived at the last Monday Morning Minute of the year! As I finish my seventeenth year in education, and second in Wayland, I am in awe of how much our students and teachers have accomplished!
During my recent hike to Walden, we stopped for about ten minutes to reflect upon the past year. It was nice to hear many students reflecting upon on how much they have grown over the past year and proud of what they have accomplished. I too have had a wonderful time, meeting all of your marvelous children and getting to know them on a personal basis. I was able to travel with the sixth grade on field trips to Walden Pond, to the MFA and to roller-skating and look forward to finally seeing D.C. next year with the eighth grade. I was fortunate enough to have my own TAG and share a classroom with Ms. Hagan and the Clownfish. I wish the eighth grade the best at the high school and hope they come back and visit us next year.
I want to the thank everyone for making this a memorable year. There were so many highlights that made this year unforgettable. The outpouring of support from the teachers, office staff, PTO and families was constant throughout the year.
I hope that you and your families have a relaxing and fun summer break and look forward to seeing you again in the fall.
