End of Year Letters BACK TO My Students

My Hope and Dream Letter

Originally uploaded by teachergal

I can hardly believe there’s only five school days left even though I’ve been going through my students’ end of the year reflection letters, and responding to each of them in writing, this past week. It takes awhile to do it well. Therefore, this is the third night I’m working on them (I’m hoping to finish this evening!).

I’ve found my responses (written on handmade note cards) to be a bit lengthier this year since I’m tying my notes back to them in with my “hope and dream” for each of my students. Seeing as I had them reflect on whether or not they’ve accomplished their hopes and dreams this year, I thought it would be nice for ME to not only reflect on what they have accomplished, but on what I hope they’ll accomplish in their school careers and in their lives.
