I thought this school year would be much easier, having a bit more knowledge on how to manipulate 7 year olds with a few cool tricks in my pocket. For those who teach, you know this is wishful thinking. My 25 young ‘ens had more than enough characteristics in them including the energy level that each character possessed. Although I have to say, I am going to miss their “innocent” giggles, their tight little hugs, their creativity, and not to mention the attention. To my 2nd grade class of 2006-2007, thank you for sweet memories, trying days, and your big hearts. Believe in yourself. You will always be in my prayers.
