You guys know I'm a big fan of Kayci's school (hopefully Noble's school, next year!) and Kayci has been blessed with wonderful teachers all 5 years so far. I'm hard to impress, but her 4th grade teachers have really knocked my socks off...they work HARD, y'all. I was worried about 4th grade being tough, but while they're working on some pretty hard concepts, the teachers are putting in time behind the scenes to create hands-on experiences and finding ways to present things in more than one way so the kids really get it. And they do it all without complaining--you know I'd know. :)
4th grade is different (for parents, anyway) because the teachers never ask for ANYTHING. No snacks, no extra supplies, nothing. The kids get special snacks every Friday, but the teachers do it all themselves and don't make a big deal of it. This sounds like a little thing, but my teacher friends know what a big thing it is. I'm telling y'all, these ladies are wonderful, wonderful teachers who are obviously passionate about what they're doing.
One of Kayci's teachers, the famous Mrs. K. (well, she's famous at our house because she loves Texas as much as we do!), is in the running to go on a Toms giving trip. You know Kayci is a big fan of Toms, and she'd love to help Mrs. K make her dream come true. The voting ends in 10 days, and Mrs. K is a good 2000 votes behind the winner. Could you guys please take some time and go vote for her? She's a wonderful lady and teacher, and we'd love to see her win this awesome experience! Thanks!
