When my own children and their friends talk about school and teachers, they always share how much they loved their elementary teachers. They comment on those that were excited to come to school every day - they could really tell - and those that were positive and encouraging to them. I am always amazed at what they specifically remember and what they have held with them through the years. It is always how the teacher made them feel about themselves and as learners.

You guys are laying the foundation for lifelong learning and a love of school. Thank you for giving everything you have to our students. Our little Florence Falcons are lucky to have you!!!
