Last week in Kindergarten!

Here we are in the last week of kindergarten…what a wild and crazy fun ride it has been! 🙂 This was my first year back in the classroom after doing special education administration for the past 2 school years.

We hit every day running to learn new things in reading, writing, math, and science. I...
