Hi Ms. V! James and Emma's mom here. I just wanted to tell you what an amazing teacher you are. I just printed out some homework stuff. And I saw some of the pictures from classes. You're exactly what my kids needed. Especially Emma. I'm so thankful you are a part of our village. I hope you know how wonderful you are. God has blessed you with a gift of teaching. You are going above and beyond! And I felt like God was telling me, to tell you. You really are a great teacher. I have a 22yr old, and a 20yr old, who went to private school. So, I feel like I've had alot of experiences with teachers. You impress me with your teaching. You have a natural gift. My kids are being challenged, and I see an improvement already. You've got this! Thankful for you
