Last Lesson

Today marks the final CCD lesson of the year for my 6th graders, yesterday was the last for 4th grade. What does that mean? Well, for me it means that I’ve officially taught religious education for every single grade from Kindergarten through 6th. Wowzers! And looking back, I can report the best and worst ages to teach, my favorite being 3rd & 4th grades and not-so-favorite 2nd and 5th. But don’t get me wrong – I’m thrilled to have had the chance to be in the classroom making a difference all those years. Wouldn’t have changed a thing.

So what’s a catechist to do next week? What any CCD teacher would do…
THROW A PIZZA PARTY!

While sitting back all smug about being done, of course. *happy dance*

    Brenda – congratulations! It sounds like you have really enjoyed your time. The good kind of giving is when you both receive, and it sounds very true for you. Enjoy your summer! You go girl!

    Look how many lives you have touched. Amazing. Have any of them come back to you and thanked you for the lessons learned yet? You are a very giving person, what a great example to set for your kids!

    @marijopuleo – thanks! I did. Can’t quite put my finger on the exact reason why, but this year was especially good to us. Now on with preparing 7th graders for Confirmation… but first: SUMMER!

    @maksbestfriend – none have actually come back to thank me, but one person did surprise me with a big hug after mass. That was priceless. 🙂
