The Last Day...

Friday was our last day of school.  We enjoyed minute to win it games and candy awards.  We laughed, we cried, we hugged and high fived.  The perfect ending. 

Minute to Win It

Candy Bar Awards and red carpet walk! 

This special day also happened to be my last day at this school.  I moved to Texas in 2007.  I got this job teaching first grade in 2007 and have stayed in first grade my entire time in this school.  My own two children attended here and some of our best family memories are within these walls.

It's time to say goodbye to this chapter in our lives and look ahead to new memories and school family. 

From this....

To empty classroom after all the years and memories.
Goodbye School!

Hello new beginnings.

    1. Thank goodness we will forever be connected!!!!

  4. Such a nice walk down memory lane. Moving classrooms and schools is always so hard. My mom was a teacher and I went to school in the same district she taught in. That commute to work/school in the morning with my mom is a memory I will cherish always. Long talks, scenery, and each others company...nothing compares to that. Sending good luck to your new transition and happy summer!

  16. I love your blog!!!!. Good luck in your move and new job. I totally understand the moving because it takes my fingers and toes to count all the districts and schools that I've taught at. I have been blessed to teach in the same district the last 8 years. Once again good luck and look forward to more exciting things from you. BTW, my kids have loved the snake stuff!!!!

  17. Regan, I teach 1st in Texas, too. You and your awesome blogging have made me a better teacher. Thank you for sharing all that you have. You are so generous with your ideas that it gives me a small glimpse into how generous you must be with your students. Although I have never met you, I will miss you if you don't keep blogging. Thank you for a great year!!!
