For the past 5 weeks, our class has enjoyed the company of a student teacher from RDC. Ms Carritt came to our classroom filled with joy and optimism, and she showed tremendous growth as a student teacher. She connected with each student, she learned lots of new things, and she was never afraid to try something new. She left us with the idea of choosing work that is “challenging but not frustrating”, and she helped us to realize that we are capable of great things.

We will miss her… but we know she is going to be an extraordinary teacher some day. Good luck as you finish your degree, Ms Carritt!




What a year! Each time I think of this class, I smile. I have been privileged to spend the year with smart, kind, compassionate, and curious kids. They stood up for each other and showed respect as they became leaders in our school. They helped build a classroom community that was genuine and caring, and their sense of wonder was truly inspiring. I can’t wait to see what the future holds for them!

Summer is a time to refresh and relax, but I am really sad to wave goodbye to this group. I know they are destined for big things! Parents, thank you for sharing your children with me this year. They are wonderful little people.

Have a fantastic summer, and remember to keep in touch!
