A few months ago, I had a young friend that I met on Facebook, Kara Morris, ask me to help her write a poem for her graduation announcements. I wrote the initial draft and Kara tweaked the words to work for her. In the end, we came up with this darling poem that I would now like to borrow from Kara and share with you all for my own graduation announcement.
Just beyond my reach
Are the children I plan to teach.
And as graduation draws near,
Their faces become more clear.
He has a lopsided grin
With juice stains on his chin.
And her bow is falling down as she spins ’round and ’round.
I am filled with anticipation
As I prepare for the celebration.
For the children I plan to teach,
Are just within my reach.
I actually wrapped up my Master’s degree in Early Childhood Education a few months ago but today was the ceremony.
Now it is time for me to start the Doctoral… well maybe I will take a little time off first!
Congratulations to Kara (the young one)
and Me (the old one)
for our accomplishments in the field of
Early Childhood Education!
