Valentine's Day 2013
Well the week did not go exactly as planned. I had to get to Nebraska for my grandma's funeral. She was a lovely lady so full of energy and a glimmer in her eye. My kids thought the world of her and I am so glad they got to know her even with living so many miles away. This is one of my favorite pictures of grandma with Kaile and Carson at the beach. She loved coming her to get away from all that snow in Nebraska. When I got back guess what I was met with the biggest hugs from my firsties and parents. There were cards and even flowers! Thank you all so much for thinking of us during this hard time.
Valentine's Day was put on hold until I got back. We got to share our February family projects while stuffing them with valentines and treats. Check out how creative these firsties are!
My name is Jeanne Wright and this is my 22nd year teaching in Volusia County, Florida. I am honored to be the 2009 Volusia County Teacher of the Year. That year I was also one of five finalists for the Florida Teacher of the Year. I am National Board Certified since 1999 in Early Childhood Generalist. I look forward to a wonderful year with my first graders!
