February is almost gone ya’ll!

With all that we must endure in the classroom, we must also remember the things that keep us going. The smiles of our sweet students that still come to school to learn is one thing that keeps me going. You know that one student that wants to help you with everything? Or the one that sits quietly, hoping that you notice them. These are the kinds of things that remind us of the important role we play in the lives of our students. So, as February draws to a close, be encouraged by the truth of these words–

All the days of January are behind us now
We made it through each one, sometimes wondering how?

But we must continue to press on and look ahead for what is coming our way

One thing we know for sure, love and chocolate will come on Valentine’s Day

There are parties to have and sweet snacks to eat

Our kids really look forward to this day, because it is such a treat

But parties and fun are certainly not all we will do

It’s the hearts we touch, and the work we put in, that makes a mark which lasts the whole year through

 

Love,

Michelle L. Bowers

A True Champion

One who teaches children and offers support

One who fights through battles like a lawyer in court

One who speaks proudly in support of one another

One who has tenaciousness and strength like no other

One who advocates and presents a cause

One who stands tall without seeking applause

One who increases their knowledge to be prepared

One who endures persecution without being scared

All this takes a not-giving-up-spirit with courage and grit

Teachers, you are true champions, and this you must never forget!

Love,

Mrs. Bowers

Make it a January to Remember!

Christmas is behind us and now a new month is here

January is for new beginnings, which is an exciting time of year

A time to reflect on what new opportunities lie ahead

Such as new activities, new learning, or new books never read

But the beauty of it all is the fresh start that you get

With your kids, your colleagues, even those you just met

And there’s a freshness in the air that gives us hope for what is to come

But never forget what you do as a teacher is work that brings hope to everyone

Love,

Mrs. Bowers

Happy 2019!

A Time of Rest

A winter break is exactly what we need

To stop and get the rest that is necessary indeed

No papers to grade, no kids to discipline either

No homework assignments, just a few moments of leisure

Allow your body to relax and yes your mind too

Because soon enough there will be plenty for you to do

So away with the to-do list and enjoy yourself some

And hold on to the memories you create believing there are even more to come

 

Much Love and Blessings,

MLB

 

 

 

 

December is here!

All the things of November have come to an end

No turkey, no dessert although leftovers might be a friend

December has much to offer too, you see

Field trips, sing a-longs and maybe even a spelling bee

Through it all we do our best to always keep our cool

Knowing that some of our kids’ best times, are at school

So, no matter what this month brings, always remember

The wonderful difference you make with your kids goes far beyond December!

Love,

MLB
