A Letter to My Second Graders

The following was originally posted on Huffington Post
To my sweet, second-grade students, 
I have some very important things to tell you. I mean, super important. Turn on your best listening ears because what I’m about to tell you is something that I hope you’ll always remember. 
In fact, if you leave my class at the end of this year and forget some of what I’ve taught you except for this, that’s okay. I know you won’t remember everything
But always remember this: You matter. You are loved. And you are a gift to this world.
