God's blessings to me!

These are my beautiful 19 fourth grade students at Christmas time. They so graciously gave me the "Gift card Tree" beside me. Each student sent in a gift card (Taps, Gap, T.j Maxx, Panera, Kirk lands, Olive Garden.... you name it!) I was sooo flabbergasted, I didn't even know what to say, except THANK YOU :o)

I always love my job, but especially this time of year :o)

No, seriously, I have some pretty awesome kids that I am SURE God is going to do amazing things with this year and in the FUTURE!

I love seeing the pics of your kids and your classroom. You really are a "REAL" teacher. Almost 5 years now! I want to come visit sometime.

hi julie! thanks for the note. your kids are cute. aren't they so much fun? brandon would rather teach kids than anyone else. he loves elementary kids. he preached the last two sundays at church, but he would way rather be in salt & light (our children's church) preaching the same message with crazy voices and actions. (he does it for the adults too, though) have fun. parents give the best gifts (i think its because they know what their kids are like and appreciate the break)
