A Smile When I Need It

I had an interview today.  For a 3rd/4th combined class.

I'm not one to be nervous about interviews usually, but after interviewing for a job at my church's school and being rejected, my confidence level has taken a beating this summer.

As I was collecting things to bring with me (samples of my lesson plans, pictures of things I've done with students), I found the book that the 3rd grade class from my student teaching days made for me.  It brought a smile to my face!

They were a fun class!

A letter from Raquel

"An Appreciated Letter For Mrs. Brubaker"
Dear Mrs. Brubaker.
Thank you for teaching me lots of things!  Now I'm a verry smart girl.  You are verry sweat [hopefully that means sweet!] and kind.  I will miss you.  Once again, Thank You!
Best Regards, Joie

Brubaker is very helpful
Really pretty
Brubaker never gives up (she's 100% cool!)
Always on the lead
Knows everything
Everday has everything ready
Really nice

p.s. that's why I asked you yesterday what "best regards" means so that I can put it on here.
p.p.s.  I think that you will be a good teacher.
p.p.p.s. You taught me everything that you were supposed to teach me and that's why I'm so smart.
p.p.p.p.s. thank you for everything you did.
p.p.p.p.p.s. I will never forget about you!

From Anthony:
Dear Brubaker,
Thanks for coming.  I miss you.  Could you name some students at your old school?  I would be proud if you say I'm one of them.  Mrs. Lee invited you to come back for a good party.  See you later!
Love, Anthony

Dear Mrs. B,
Thank you for having lunch with us!   I can't believe how Jubileo cannon balled our group hug and you almost tripped.  Wow!  Don't forget us I miss really bad!  Don't forget the class.
Love, Maddie

Dear Mrs. Brubaker,
Thank you for teaching me every thing.  Thank you for teaching me math and spelling.  I liked how you taught us how to be quiet.  Plus I love how you taught us how to write a letter.  I mostly like when you taught us how to do fractions.
Love, S

From Daniel

Silly class shot

That fills me with happy thoughts!
Pray for me today as I wait to hear back from the interview!
I hope I have good news by this time tomorrow.  I'm ready for it :-)
