In honor of Ms. Davis retiring today, I'd like to write a few words about love:
One thing I love about Ms. Davis when I walk in her room is how she fusses at the kids when they don't listen but also has so much love for them. Her love for students is a strong and protecting one. They trust her, they know she cares for them and it is touching to see how they see her as a mother figure and respect her. Of course we'll all miss Ms. Davis fashion inspiration. She is the most put-together faculty member every day! Who can take her place? But her real gift is the strength of her love as a teacher.
Speaking of retiring, Ms. Marshall dropped by at lunch to surprise the kids and you would not believe the reception she got. There could not have been more screaming than if a movie star had walked it!
Seeing the love and hugs between student and teacher with Ms. Marshall in the cafeteria and Ms. Davis at her goodbye parties today makes me sad for students who never see teachers as part of their family (and mad a teachers who only see students as problems,).
Ms. Delaney says it best here in this student contest video submitted today to the Cam Newton contest:
"What makes us so special? It's because we're a family!"
Celebrating Piedmont : a blog of Happy Happenings
"Celebrating Piedmont" logs only a small fraction of the learning magic the teachers of CMS' Piedmont Middle School, an IB World School. create daily. In that sense, it is authored by all the staff and students of Piedmont. It is curated by Ms. Gurthie who can be reached at the icons above. She'll be happy to brag about Piedmont's teachers and students any chance she gets! Please note this blog has only just begun and we have so much to show off! Come back again soon!
