Inspiration Monday Linky

I'm linking up with Dana over at Fun in 1st Grade again for her Inspiration Monday. Click on the button if you'd like to link up and find some inspiration. 

This is what I posted last week because I truly love my students. 

This is my inspiration for this week. :)
Dear Mrs. Key
You are sweet. You are nice. 
You have a heart that shines. 
(She drew a picture of us.)

That is a note from a first grader. Does it get any sweeter than that? I get notes and pictures on a daily basis from my kiddos. They just make me smile. However, there is something extra special about a sincere note. It inspires me to continue doing what I'm doing. I may not have every lesson perfectly planned. I may mess up from time to time but in their eyes, I'm doing it just right. 


  1. Aw! That just melted my heart! Those kiddos are so lucky to have you!

  2. I love the note...there is nothing more heartwarming than the kid words we get from our kiddos! It makes every moment of teaching worth the time and effort!

  7. Very sweet notes.... If they don't inspire you, not much will. I'm a first grade teacher in Georgia, and I have a question to ask you. Could you email me at It's a teaching question/favor. I am you newest follower. Thanks and have a great week!
