Fare thee well Mrs. Randolph...

Alice was so blessed this year with Mrs. Randolph. We are sooo going to miss her. She is a seasoned teacher who truly loves her job. She considers it her calling from God and she certainly is fulfilling her calling.
I wish she would teach first grade too!
Some great things she did-
1. She made us a memory book of all the fun things they did this year.
2. She made Alice (and subsequently all the other children) feel like they were the most important children on earth.
3. Her parties were well planned and lots of fun.
4. When it was clear that Alice could read well, she let Alice read from her "personal" collection- Alice cherished those books.
5. When Alice went to sea world, Mrs. Randolph sent a special book bag, with pencils, erasers, colors, markers, worksheets, books and a notebook, so she could "keep up" (alice was only gone one day) Alice again felt so important.
6. She instilled a love of learning that will last Alice her lifetime.
We worried that our little center of the universe would be overlooked, but she wasn't. Alice chose to go to school on a day she could have stayed home to be with her grandparents (because Mrs. Randolph would miss her)
If you are in Crosby, request Mrs. Randolph!

There is nothing better than a fabulous teacher for your child -- it was always so hard for me to pretty much give my kids to their teachers but we had some that were the same as Mrs. Randolph -- a real gift. Love it that Alice had such a great year and a wonderful teacher to start her off in school.
