Not everyone is anxious for the last day of school
Sometimes students love their teachers so much they don't really want the school year to end. I got this email today from Katie Evans, a third grade teacher at Shady Spring Elementary School, who wrote it yesterday.
On the last Monday before school let out for the summer, I was eating lunch with two third grade students of mine. Both students were very energetic, football loving, Wrestle Mania fanatics.
We chatted about the recent wrestling matches and argued that living in Baltimore means your
favorite football team can not be the Indianapolis Colts or the New York Giants. We had to agree to disagree on this topic. As our 30 minutes of pizza and Capri Suns slowly came to an end, one of the boys says to me, "If I had 3 wishes, I would wish for 2 more months of 3rd grade with you." Now to anyone else, this might sound cute, which it is.
But to me, it will sadly mark the last Monday that I will spend with these two very special boys.
