It is about this time of year that I realize how much I care about my students. I have spent so much time with them, learning about their likes and dislikes, their strengths and weaknesses. I have dreams in which they are walking down city streets waving at me or helping me buy a new car. They have a way of making it into conversations at my dinner table. The truth is, I love my students! Each and every one. It sure is exciting to feel appreciated by them, too. Zoom in to see how Miss White encouraged my students to "show me the love."



I am going to "show some love" back at the Superstars in my classroom. A few kiddos really stood out for me this time around. Some kids are really maturing at this time of year and showing growth in responsibility. I am proud of them. 


A group of students consistently help me after school to get jobs done. They file papers, clean off desks, complete odd jobs, run errands, and many other things. Pictured here are some of the helpers who were here today.


Famous Person

My famous person was born on January 20th in the year of 1985. He is an American country rock artist from Jefferson, Georgia. Four of his songs have gone number 1. He is 31 years old. He also wrote Jason Aldean’s singles “My Kinda Party” and “Dirt Road Anthem.” Some of his songs are Bottoms up, Kick it in the Sticks, Small town throwdown, Country must be country must be country wide, and You do not know her like I do. He is married to  Amber Cochran. They got married on June 28, 2015.  

Question of the Week

Since I learned that the teachers here at Palermo School don’t give much homework, I’ve asked Natisha how she feels about homework when she does get it. She said, “When I get homework I’m bummed because I could be doing other things.” I asked her how often she gets homework. She explained, “Whenever I do get homework, I usually finish it in class.” Next I asked her how much homework she would usually get if the teachers gave her homework in every single class. She estimated, “A page in every class probably, except for math and science. We have a number of problems to do.”

Two Truths and a Lie

1. When I was 2 my father left me. He threw all my memories away. The reason why he left me was for another girl and 4 kids. After that I have never heard or seen him. I have never liked him since.
2. When I was 5 years old my mom took me out for ice cream and I dropped it on the pavement. I was sad that I dropped my ice cream but I carried on and went to the park.
3. When I was 11, I went to the hospital for my face, mainly my forehead. My little sister Calli threw a tinkerbell music box at me. I threw it on her bed and she threw it back. I was bleeding all over my bed and had to get stitches. I have a scar from it.
