    Kindness
     

    Spread a little kindness

    Sprinkle as you go

    Send it out into the world

    Watch it ebb and flow

    Plant a kindness garden

    The more seeds that you sow

    You'll find your own happiness

    Will grow,

    And grow,

    And grow!

    "I have come to believe that a great teacher is a great artist and that they are as few as there are any other great artists. Teaching might even be the greatest of the arts since the medium is the human mind and spirit."                               

                                                              -John Steinbeck                                              

    "And in the end it's not the years in your life that count. It's the life in your years."  

                                                                                                                              -Abraham Lincoln      

     

    I am grateful for all our fabulous parents who make a difference in your child's education, our class, and the Hendrick Hudson School District!
