Back to School

The first day of school is an exciting day for students, parents and teachers.  In my teaching career, I had 30 of these “First Days,” all located in the kindergarten classroom in the Birdville ISD in Texas.

The night before the first day was always a very restless sleep night for me.  I felt so responsible for making all of my new students and parents feel welcome, excited and comfortable with the education journey that awaited them.  The first day of kindergarten, in particular, is filled with smiles and tears and plenty of emotion.  Parents hugging their children goodbye and trusting them into a teacher’s care was always a touching time.

I was always amazed at the end of the first day, how smoothly everything seemed to go!  All of the hugs and smiles I received from the children and their parents, made me feel confident that it was going to be a wonderful school year!

Retirement Luncheon where she was presented with her favorite jewelry…Carolyn Pollack!

Even though I’ve been retired now for 11 years, the beginning of the new school season still brings a sense of excitement for me.  I’m so very grateful for all of my years of teaching and the wonderful memories made.

    Consider yourself blessed if you’ve ever had the opportunity to meet this extraordinary person. Becky makes each and every day at the gallery a true delight. Whether it’s her joyful spirit or her love of people (of all ages), you will always remember her genuine smile. We love our Becky!
