Dear World….

For the past three years, I have ended the school year with a “Dear World” inspired photo shoot. This is a chance for my kids to express who they are and the message that they would like to leave as they depart our classroom and head on to new things.

This past June, I did it again with my gorgeous kids.  Their quotes were original and heartfelt and their photos make me cry! They are strong, determined, passionate kids with so much to offer and they possess the determination to see them through anything.

Here are our messages of love and hope from us to you….enjoy!

  1. Sonya, I have been following you for a while and love when your new posts pop up in my email…but I was never more surprised than when today I uploaded your Dear World Vimeo and discovered that you are a teacher at MIS! I must have just missed your arrival ~ I wish I had had the opportunity to work with you, your passion for teaching and your students has always resonated with me. I loved seeing your fourth graders, many of them new, but many of them I knew as second graders, and loved those cheeky little faces then! So great so them all set for Middle School!

    1. Thank you, Paula! I thought the connection had been made – I was hearing about you through Tricia and on the other end, Sharon, both of whom have told me that I would have really enjoyed working with you too. This is my second year at MIS – fourth grade last year and Learning Technology for JS this year. I loved seeing “my kids” on their first day of Middle School this year – so excited and nervous! I loved the messages they shared too and know they will do a great job moving forward. Our paths may cross yet!

  2. Philip certainly had a great message – they were all lovely to watch, a wonderful feel good.

    1. I love watching this video! They are all really interesting kids and it was so fun to see what they would come up with to express themselves. It is one of my favorite parts of the year, making these videos!
