Christine Herkert, 5th Grade Teacher at JCMS shares her thoughts about the start of the new year . . .
"Each year before school starts, I will go back through my notes, cards, pictures, etc. that students and parents have given me throughout the years. I cherish these acts of kindness and love. It brings a smile to my face and a warmth in my heart of all the great memories that we shared. Looking forward into the next year, I’m excited of all the new memories to be made. Each year is a new beginning and I love being able to see kids succeed, grow, and accomplish so many things. It’s a true blessing to walk along side them through their journey. This year, my son will head to PreK and I’m excited for all of the memories he will make with his teacher."
