Graduates!

Yesterday I went to graduation in the town where I teach.....the students who were graduating, I had them in second and in third grade, as I looped with them....I have much love for these kids....and I wish them all the best luck for their journey into adulthood......

Since these are so old, I'm going to post them....

Second Grade:  I taught Dual Language, at the time, so had two classes, that I shared with a partner teacher.

 Third Grade:


I have lost touch with most of them, I've run into a few...one got married last year and I went to the wedding...Some of them, I have no idea where they are.....but I want to say a big old CONGRATULATIONS to the ones I watched cross that stage yesterday!
Beatriz, Hershelle, Faith, Kiara, Yessica, Jesse, Kelvin, Sebastian, Efrain, Benjamin, Alejandro, Geovanni, Angel, Anthony, Ariel, Gregory and Orlando...I am so very proud of you!!!!

The one student that I did take a picture with was Beatriz.....I saw many others, but it was a huge crush of people and hard to stop and take pictures...Beatriz is a student I spent a lot of time with, in school and outside of school....she has great parents who have raised their children (3 girls and 2 boys) through some really, really tough times....I am so, so proud of her graduating!  And her sister, Valerie, who received her GED the night before!!!!!!
