Hi Ms. Kimball!!
The first day of school was a lot of fun today but of course I missed you! How was your trip? What did you do? All the teachers in the middle school were super nice and friendly. I miss you a lot!
That is so awesome to hear! I'm so glad your teachers are nice. I miss you too! I can't wait for you to come back for a visit.
My trip to Portugal was amazing. I toured old castles, kayaked under rock caverns, and hiked along the rim of a dormant volcano. Cool, huh?
Thanks so much for writing. I can't wait to hear all about middle school!
Dear Ms. Kimball,
Hi! Middle School has been crazy! We miss you a lot though. How's the new class? Good Luck!!!!
So great to hear from you! I miss you too. I'm dying to hear how your first few days of middle school have been going. You'll need to define "crazy" for me --I want details! The new class is doing well so far. We've had many debates about how to allocate comfy chair privileges. I always forget how long every thing takes at the beginning of the school year compared to the end of the school year. We'll get there!
I hope you can come by for a visit someday soon.
Dear Ms. Kimball,
I define "crazy" as in everything is a lot more complicated and busy here. Instead of one or two teachers, we have 5. As for the comfy chairs, I would do the same thing you did with us last year. Close them off and tell people to earn them back. I thought that it worked!
Complicated is a good way to describe "crazy." I bet it is challenging to keep track of assignments from 5 different teachers, and learn each of their expectations. Soon you'll get in a routine, then I bet everything will feel easy!
So far, 5K-2017's comfy chair sharing has been going well. No outrageous abuses of privileges yet! I saved the "closed until further notice" signs from last year, so I can pull them out if needed!
Rock on in your learning!
Hi Ms. Kimball,
I miss you so much! Middle school is crazy but it would of been even more crazy if we did not have you for a teacher. You made middle school so much easier with all the small life lessons you taught us. It's to bad you could not become a 6th grade teacher:( Hope you have as much fun as you did with us with your new class! I miss you, can't wait to come back and visit!
So great to hear from you! You aren't the first person to claim middle school is crazy (see Whitney's comment above). I can't wait for you to visit and tell me all about it. Hopefully your teachers are nice. I'm so glad you feel my attempts at teaching life lessons were helpful. That's always been one of my favorite parts of teaching (although you know me... I love teaching everything!)
Hope to see you soon! Good luck in 6th grade!
Dear Ms. Kimball,
Middle school has been awesome! It took a while to get used to it but now its really fun. I have the best teachers, they're all so nice. I miss fifth grade A LOT though. U were the BEST TEACHER EVER!!!
Thanks so much for writing to me! I'm so happy to hear you're enjoying middle school so far. See? I told you the middle school teachers would be nice. Hopefully you feel prepared for all of the exciting challenges coming your way in 6th grade.
Come back for a visit soon!
