     Mrs. B's Family



    What a beautiful summer it has been.  My family was able to sneak in a few camping trips.   In my opinion, there is nothing more relaxing than a campfire, a cup of coffee, and a good book.  For me Summer is winding down and I am setting up the classroom for the upcomping year. 
    This will be my 12th year of teaching 4th grade at JKL.  Each year as I unpack and set up I often look at my "Wall of Fame" now relabeld as 4th Grade Alumni which has former class pictures.  I am filled with so many emotions pride, gratitude, happiness, hope, humility, and sadness.  Each of those children was a gift to this classroom.  I am truly looking forward to the upcoming year and cannot wait to meet the next group of "gifts".
