Barnett Elementary School

Monday was my last day teaching at Barnett Elementary! It was such a fun, exciting, and enjoyable experience. I loved all those first graders and was so sad to say goodbye. I love how sweet and innocent they are... and they have such a strong desire to learn. They each have their own unique personalities and I was so glad I was able to get to know each one of them. I got a little teary eyed when they read me their notes and gave me lots of hugs before I left. I am going to miss them!

This is the class I taught. There are 4 kids missing
We had to do a crazy picture.
I made these little goody bags for each one of the kids with a note attached. It included a pencil, two smarties, and a tootsie pop.
The notes I wrote to the kids
They were so cute before I left. My mentor teacher and the kids got me these darling children books. They are the cutest books!
They also each wrote me a note and they each read them to me. It was so fun!
Here are a couple notes that I loved. I will include the misspellings and all! ;)
