He will start at GES Friday, and as excited as I am for his little self, I'm very anxious as well.
I have very high expectations. Not just of Jubal, but of his teachers, too. I want him to have teachers that genuinely care about him and his education. A teacher that wants to help him achieve big goals. I, as a parent, intend on doing everything I can at home to make sure Jubal does his part, and I just pray his teacher does everything she can when he's with her.
Just like his teacher now.
Mrs. Diane has been the most awesome K-3 teacher! She has taken Jubal under her wing and helped us help him grow into such a smart, funny, caring, confident, lovable little boy. He is no longer "a baby", he is a "big boy" now, especially according to him. She helped him feel that way about himself. She has in every sense been his "second mother". She's loved him as if she were, too.
I can't express how much I'm going to miss knowing my baby is with her every day. I know he is safe, I know he is learning so much, but most of all...I know he is loved.
We all love you, Mrs. Diane, and couldn't be more thankful for everything you have done for Jubal while he's been in your class. Thank you again for being such a positive influence in his young life.
Next up...Gentry! :)
