On Monday morning the parents in my mom's classroom got together to have a small retirement party for her. There was not a dry eye in the house. The room was filled with so much love. My dad even got one of my mom's very first students to attend. I was so happy that both James and I could be apart of this special day.

For those of you who don't know my mom, she has been teaching for 35 years and is hands down the best teacher I have ever met. She started her teaching career in Santa Ana, where she taught in both English and Spanish. After several years there she transfered down to Capo Unified School District. She taught at several schools in Capo which included opening two schools as a kindergarten teacher. My mom has been and will continue to be my teaching inspiration. Teaching was not just a job for my mom, it was her life. She was constantly teaching and loving her students in ways that went far above what "normal" teachers do.
The coolest part about my mom retiring is that she can now be a full time Grammie!!! James and I are thrilled that my mom will be watching Piper and Phoebe this next school year when I go back to work. We are so blessed to have her.
