I just love this

Some days, as I go to write a new post or browse through the photos of my class, I say to myself –  “I just love this!”  I love writing my blog, I love pouring through all the photos, I love teaching my class, I love being creative, I love the feedback my readers give me, and I love the chance to share it all with you.

It isn’t always easy, but no really good thing comes without some bumps in the road.

But thank you for making my experience as a blogger as smooth as I could possibly ask for.

Thank you for being supportive and generous readers. Thank you for all you do for young children and for your part in the advancement of early childhood education.

Thank you for taking the time to share my blog with others.

And to my new assistant, Mrs. Courtney – thank you for all the behind the scenes work you do for our classroom and for Teach Preschool too!

And to all my parents, thank you for allowing me to teach your children and share their work with others. Your generosity is so greatly appreciated.

Sincerely yours,

    It really is my pleasure! And I have to ditto your sentiments. Every time you post pictues, I think to myself, “oh, I just loved that!” or “that was such a great project!” It is so amazing to experience it all firsthand!

    I love your blog, it has inspired me to think more about why I do certain activities etc. It has also inspired me to blog myself. Thank you for all the hard work you do!

    Thanks for being an inspiration and thanks for your positiveness. I wish there were more people like you. Surely, your task won’t pass unnoticed in the lives of all the children you’ve had in your classes.

    Hi Deborah,
    Funny, I was just thinking the same thing. I just love this! I love my classroom, I love my wonderful students, and this year I also love getting your daily blogs. In the last few years I’ve felt tired, stale, isolated. Finding your blog has renewed my enthusiasm. It is so refreshing to find someone who believes in age appropriate quality ECE. I’ve used your ideas almost everyday. You are just what I needed! Thanks so much!

    • Deborah J. Stewart, M.Ed. says

      Ah Janet – you are a saint to leave a comment for me and I am glad we can be excited together! I value your words so much:)

    Thank you so much Deborah for all the post you send me. I have 3 kids, but not much time to put everything in practise. I wish we could live near by so that my children would have learnt with you. You have so many wonderful ideas that it’s really amazing you have even the time for your blog.
    Have a wonderful school year!!!

    And I just love this blog! I always recommend it to people as the first place to look if they want to learn about great things to do with kids. There are many great ideas on the web, but I love how you really understand young children and how they grow and develop. So that’s why I always say, if you are overwhelmed by the internet, just start with teach preschool!
