Third Grade at

"This evening we were driving in the car and I looked back to see tears streaming down (student)'s face. I asked her what was wrong. She told me, "I'm going to miss seeing Mr. C in person." She was quite upset. I just wanted you to know that all of your efforts (and your fellow teachers) does not go unnoticed - from the perspective of the kids AND the parents (well...this one anyway)! Thank you for trying to navigate this new journey as best you can. I know that this isn't easy...for any individual on this crazy spectrum - kids, teachers, parents, etc. I told some just the other day that this year is bitter-sweet for (student). On one hand I wish she could experience your energy in the classroom every single day. On the other, I'm grateful that she has you to help guide her through this madness of virtual learning." - CM Parent
