Welcome Crew!

Dear Crew,

The first day of school is only a week and a half away. I am getting so excited to meet you and start our year. We have so many books to read and things to learn. I do have one little secret that I want to share with you. I am just a bit nervous about the first day. Did you know that teachers get nervous, too? Well, we do. But I know that I will feel fine once I meet all of you and we start our day. How about you? Are you excited and just a little bit nervous about the first day, too?

I have been getting things ready for us. Below is a picture of me shopping for our school supplies. Do you see how many carts it took to hold all of our supplies? (The picture is a little blurry because of the lighting in the store. Sorry about that.)


I also thought you might like to see a picture of me with my family. The picture below was taken a few months ago. It shows my husband, Karl, my daughter, Abby, my dog, Annie and me. I often write stories about my family during Writer's Workshop so I thought it would be nice for you to see what everyone looks like. Abby used to go to our school but this year she will be going to middle school.

I hope that you are having a fun summer. I can't wait to meet you. If you have any questions or things you are wondering about, you can ask me about them in the comments below or you can send me an email.


See you on Wednesday, August 3rd!
Love,
Ms. Jill

    I think we will have a great class this year. I also think it will be a great year. Isn't it nice to know that other people are a little bit nervous, too. We can all help each other.

    Love,
