This one goes out to my oldest daughter, Elie.  As some of you know, she switched careers last summer and became a teacher.  She will start a new school year tomorrow with her OWN classroom (she team taught last year while earning her teaching certificate).

We love you and are so proud of you!  And yes, you are already making a difference!

And, to those of you who teach as well...THANK YOU!

I applaud your daughter! A big day tomorrow for Elie! Wishing her a fabulous first day and school year. My father taught for 48 years. I have a huge amount of respect for teachers! Happy Sunday Lauren.

I applaud Elie too! Teachers are so important and I personally believe they do not receive the respect or pay that is due them. She will be awesome!


Elie said...

Thank you Mommy :) and to think my admins thought it would be a good idea to give me my own classroom... they were drinking some crazy juice lol ... JUST KIDDING, super excited for this opportunity!
