WN Entry: I Am Amazed…

I Am Amazed is written and illustrated by Jodi Hills. It’s a book that pays tribute to the people in our everyday lives that we often look past and recognizes the beauty within them. My former principal read it to the entire staff as a way to tip his hat to all of us for the work we do with our kids everyday.

I found myself amazed by something three of my former students did for me today. You can read my writer’s notebook entry (below), which I scribbled out during my preparation period this morning, since I didn’t want my appreciation for these three precious souls to fade. I wanted to capture the amazing act of kindness they extended to me, a New Yorker, on the seventh anniversary of September 11th. I hope you will be as amazed with their thoughtfulness as I was…

This entry is MY way of showing how amazed I am with the three girls who planned to come and see me today to wish me well.
