I just wanted to extend my thanks to my assistants Ashlie and Kathleen. Without them the classroom would not run as smoothly as it did this year! I wanted to thank all the parents that made the decision to send you children to Absorbent Minds Montessori School and it was a pleasure teaching your children. The last day of school is always a bitter sweet day. Sure, I get to sleep in and lead a lackadaisical lifestyle for a few months but I realize I won’t see my returning students for three months and the non-returning students I may never see again. This day truly has a range of emotions. Exiting students are always welcome to come to my classroom and read to my class!
I ended up losing the bet regarding how long I could hold out to get a haircut (see below pics). It drove me crazy!!! The hair was falling into my eyes. I thought I had permanently foggy vision and was not safe for driving. I felt there were bugs crawling on my face and things were constantly in my peripheral vision. The last time I had hair this long was like 1979 and I was listening to a 45 record of Aerosmith’s “Sweet Emotion” Dark times indeed. LOL Now I am back top my civilized look, driving much better, and I may crank up the radio when Sweet Emotion comes on.
As I always say after my morning line time banter……. Your teachers are glad that you are here. You are special and unique children and special and unique people. I am proud of what you do AND I love you very much.
Your children can now count to ten in 28 languages (English, Latin, Sign Language, Spanish, German, French, Japanese, Greek, Arabic with the Lebanese Dialect, Italian, Russian, Romanian, Swedish, Tagolog, Hebrew, Korean, Hungarian, Irish, Kiswahili, Welsh, Dutch/Flemmish, Polish, Serbo-Croation, Cebuano, Malay, Hindi, Farsi, and Turkish).

I guess I’d better think up a way to spend my time.
Just when I’m ready to sit inside, it’s summer time.
Should I go swimming or get a friend to hang around?
It’s back to summer, back to basics, hang around!
