Thanks For the Bonus Points!

I was on maternity leave from Spring Break through the end of the school year. I recently visited school for the first time to drop off some items. One of those items was an awesome table I found at the local peddler's mall for only $10! 

While I was there, I checked my mailbox and found some end of the year letters and cards from teachers, parents, and students. One letter in particular melted my heart.

"Dear Mrs. Dennis, I will miss you next year. We were given an assignment to write a letter to our favorite teacher. I thought of you! This is the letter! You were my favorite because you gave us fun songs, gave us educational games, and expanded my knowledge in music.
First of all, you were my favorite because you gave us fun songs! I loved peanut butter pie! It was my favorite! We also got to learn about sixteenth notes!
Second of all, you gave us educational games! Now, I know the staff like the back of my hand! It's the most important thing to know when it comes to leaning music! It was really fun too!
Last but definitely not least, you expanded my knowledge in music! I love playing it and singing, so it's probably my favorite subject! I always wanted to be a singer and make music. Now, I feel more confident that I can! Thank you.
In conclusion, you are my favorite teacher! I love the way you teach, the subject you teach, and you in general. I'm happy you were my music teacher the last six years.
From J______
P.S. You were also my academic team coach, Orff instructor, and choir conductor. You get three bonus points."


I will miss this girl tremendously. She is very talented in many aspects of her life. She is an excellent student and terrific writer. She is a very talented musician and dancer. She has a strong sense of character and she is a true friend to anyone she meets. She is destined for success! I can't wait to see what the future holds for her!

Thanks for the bonus points, J______!

  1. Oh my goodness, what a wonderful letter! And the bonus points.... I have a drawer at home where I keep all of the cards, letters, and little crafts I get from my students. Every time I take them out I get the warm fuzzies! :) #fermatafridays

  2. Aww, what a great letter. Your student is definitely a great writer, and you will smile every time you read about your bonus points! #fermatafridays
