Next week is teacher appreciation week, so the kids are filling out these certificates to put in a book for the teacher. It's a fill in the blank type thing. Here's Ethan's:
Dear Mrs. Thompson,
You are the GOODEST teacher in the whole world. You have lots of PAPERWORK for your students. You are a HAPPY person, and you are FUN to be around. If you were in a talent contest, you would win first prize because your best talent is TELLING STORIES.
I think you are the most awesome teacher because
YOU TEACH ME MATH!!!
