Sometimes, when I’m teaching elementary students, I get gifts. Sometimes they say thank you. Sometimes they tell me how Awesome I am.
Sometimes they just want to give me a thing – a picture they drew, inspired by the project we just finished.
They are all sweet, and heartfelt.
Here is the newest collection from my grade 2 bird project.

they’re wonderful, I have kept them all, and started a binder, an archive of all these little thank-you’s. It’s a feel good thing for me – it helps remind me that I am important, helpful, loved, inspiring, and that I care, am talented, and passionate about what I do.

(and yet another gert big thank you to the NL Arts Council, for funding these projects in our schools. I’ve been grateful for their support in helping me and the staff, for building an arts based culture, education, and appreciation in the schools I work with.)
