Today was bittersweet, but so very amazing. I was showered with love, appreciation, and gifts from not only my coworkers-but my kids, their parents, wife, and my niece/nephew even surprised me! There were PLENTY of times I wanted to rip my hair out, and times I'll cry because I'll miss the moments so much. The children I had the honor of teaching while I was at Star Cubs will forever be in my heart and missed. The few coworkers I grew SO close to and some days, were the only thing that got me through the hard days will be missed so badly. Thank you for all your love and support!!!💗💔😭🙂I'll visit ✌🏻❣️ #ohtheplacesyoullgo#msjoan#preschoolteacher
Welp, that's a wrap 👨🏽🎓👩🏼🎓 my first year teaching at pc tots was amazing! Congratulations to my pre k littles moving on to kindergarten! I'm so sad to see them go but I am SO incredibly proud of these young- bright children. A lot of the time I thought to myself, "who's really teaching who here?". A big thanks to all the parents who were so amazing along the way. Thank you for sharing your children with me ❤️ they all have a special place in my heart! & here's to the 2017-2018 school year 🥂🍎 #teacher#graduation#ohtheplacesyoullgo#hashtag
Today was a bitter sweet day! .
Nikki first started her day and went to her Kindergarten Meet and Greet at her new school, where she met her teacher, her classroom, some of her classmates and walked the halls. She gave her teacher her school supplies and a welcome gift and her teacher was very happy to receive it all. Her teacher was very welcoming and that gave me peace. Although Nikki was a bit overwhelmed, shy, scared and also happy. All in all I think it went well. .
Then we headed to her last day at her preschool where she had an end of summer party and said goodby to her her friends, teacher, as well as the administrators who saw her grow up since she was 3 months old, which is the age I had to leave her because I still worked in my 9 to 5 job and my maternity leave was over. .
For me, it was a day full of emotions and flashbacks as well as future wishes. A milestone ended and a new one will begin this Monday! .
So as Dr. Seuss would say "Oh the places you will go! You're off to great places. Today is your day! Your mountain is waiting. So get on your way." .

We left this view early this morning to head a bit north to the coastal town of Lincoln City. We loved watching the harbor while working, and the Yaquina Bay Bridge is one of the prettiest bridges we've seen. The pets especially loved listening to the sea lions and watching the seagulls fly overhead. Max sat here all day watching the sights and taking it all in. 🐺🤗🌊 ~S
The first week was fabulous with my class!! I honestly can say this while be a great year no matter what, I love each and everyone one of my kids and can't wait to see y'all grow.🍎👩🏼🏫 #Teacher#Preschool#K2#ohtheplacesyoullgo
Next morning at Niagra Falls: Scott finished his report on the grant evaluation in the morning and then we drove onto Goat Island to see the Canadian Falls. Hard to imagine that people ever went over the falls in a barrel (11 lived & 5 died). We didn't have time to go to the Canadian side. #nocombdontcare
We also drove downstream to see the whirlpool that has class 6 rapids leading up to a 450 ft. deep whirlpool 🙀. There is an awesome looking hike down to it if you have healthy knees. Overall, a fun 24 hours! #niagrafalls#whirlpool
We made a quick trip to Niagra Falls. We saw the American Falls just before dark. Holy moly, is it a lot of water! 1/5 of the world's surface fresh water passes over the falls. They are just as spectacular as when I saw them in elementary school. #niagrafalls
