Over the past few weeks, we have been doing a lot of celebrating! And much on my behalf!

First of all, I had a birthday and turned 22! I don't think there is any better place to celebrate your birthday than in Kindergarten. The kids think birthdays are pretty darn special!

Tressie made my birthday super special in many ways! One being that she made pizza for the whole team as a birthday lunch! Awesome! Thank you Tressie! :)

Then last week, we celebrated my last day of student teaching. It was bittersweet. I am very excited about graduating but I am also in love with 15 five year olds!

I gave each of the kids a little bug catching kit and we had a bug hunt as part of our little goodbye celebration!

Then today, I was honored to receive the "Always Expect More of Aggie Teachers" Award from Texas A&M. Both Tressie and my university supervisor sent a recommendation letter in to nominate me and I won it!

So today while I was substituting, I was surprised by all the kids, Tressie, the school principal, my university supervisor, and the student teaching director who all came to deliver the award!

All this celebrating has me feeling like a pretty special gal! I want to give big thank you to all the kids and their parents for allowing me to be a part of their Kindergarten experience! AND I want to give a huge THANK YOU to Tressie! My ambition to become a teacher has grown so much stronger throughout this semester and it is all thanks to you!

I made this little video with pictures taken over the past few weeks:
