Last week, I invited you to join me in extending Thanksgiving blessings to our students by writing them a letter. As promised, here are my letters to 1st and 2nd period, respectively. It didn’t take long to write them either!

Dear 1st Period,
I am thankful for you! Both collectively and individually, you are a caring group of young people. I love seeing you work together to help each other and me. For example, you were eager to lend a hand when all those stuffed animals for Y-Club needed to be inspected and boxed up to be shipped overseas…all 327 of them! You are also nice and respectful to each other, which is a breath of fresh air as I witness this day in and day out during class.
I know each of you will be successful in life! I’m thanking God for you this Thanksgiving.

Dear 2nd Period,
I am thankful for you! I have now had the privilege of teaching you not only in 6th, not only in 7th, but also in 8th grade. My how time has flown by! You have grown into some amazing young people. Your energy and enthusiasm never ceases to amaze me (and wear me out on some days lol). For example, everyone wants (even begs) to read the standard just to receive a devil dollar! Why?… Because you want to WIN! That competitive spirit is going to make every one of you a winner in life. I have NO doubt about that!
You are awesome and I am thankful to have taught you throughout your middle school years. Now, get to work and behave!
God bless you,
Click on this link, The BMS Career Center, to read each period’s letter as I post them this week. Here’s hoping it catches on, because I firmly believe, without equivocation, as we bless our students we will be blessed as well.
God bless you fellow Christian teachers! I am thankful for you each and every day. Stay devoted to God and you will be a more excellent teacher!
