the purpose of teaching and a little valentine's day

So I was was a hard day. I am having trouble with one of my friends but I know with some more prayer and love they'll turn it around. But today ended on a good note from one of my special little boys in my room. One of my boys went to read with our reading coach (he came to me reading 5 wpm and now we are at 55!!) at the end of the day so I popped in to listen when I dropped my kids off at PE. After hearing him read and our reading coach and I gushing over how great of a reader he is this special gift was given to us. We were talking about something else and he began writing this note, totally unprompted.
"I am a good reader and my teecher think I am a good reader. 
and I Love my teecher and I love miss planz" 
Needless to say I left the room with tears filling my eyes. After a long day it was just what I needed to be reminded that I am making a difference. This little boy who came to me not know all of his sounds is now reading and BELIEVING IN HIMSELF! I am so proud that all of his hard work has paid off, he truly loves reading to anyone who will let him read! Now I know the words are spelled wrong and they aren't perfect sentences, but those are not the important things in life. Yes, I am a teacher saying that, but its because I believe believing in yourself can take you far in life!
Now before I start crying again, let's talk about Valentine's Day.
A great part of being a teacher: having 20 Valentines!
 They loved the crayons!
 Valentine bags to hold all of our loot!

 cake pops made a great Valentine treat! 
(for a how to look over at the sis's blog)

 The class beside me made these! How cute, definitely going to try these 
out next year, or in our ladybug unit!
 We rounded the day out by doing a Candy Heart probability worksheet I found in blogland. 
Thanks for reading!
