Kelsey’s school has a wonderful evening where students create a business plan, make or create items, and sell their items at a marketplace. It is a fantastic experience for students and a highlight for the community. This year, the event returned and was held outside on a gorgeous spring night.
Kelsey and her cherished friend created a partnership and sold two creative items. At the end of the night, all proceeds went to Kelsey’s Kaleidoscope, Inc.
It is our family, friends, and circle of support that keeps us moving forward.
Education is an ever-changing profession that refreshes and resets each September. The pandemic stress and strain on educators have been evident. Through the uncertainty of remote learning, the choice to virtually instruct to protect our daughter’s health, and the return to traditional schooling this year, we remain proud and grateful to our educators.
Our son started his journey in middle school this year, which was a new level of unknown. The administration, faculty, and all staff this year have gone above and beyond to make this transition an easy one for us, while the return to traditional schooling has not always been easy for teachers.
Our elementary school was familiar, but the choice to keep Kelsey home for her health last year was difficult. Like our son faced a transition this year, so did Kelsey. The return presented a few initial roadblocks, but Kelsey’s perseverance did not waver.
In truth, all students and families faced a transition this year. So did all teachers.
We hope that the educators in our lives know how appreciated they are and how grateful we are to have them in our children’s lives. They make a difference every day. From book clubs to character education, and everything in between, our educators make it happen. They create a positive atmosphere for our children, they challenge young minds, and they make an impact on the next generation. They are brought into our dinner discussions and become a part of our families for the year they instruct our students, but for many years to come as well. The lessons and skills they teach build and grow to cultivate the best version of our children.
Thank you, teachers. We have been lucky enough to have the most amazing teachers surround our children.
