Last Official Day of Teaching

Last Wednesday was my last official day of teaching. I was supposed to be able to quit about 3 weeks ago, but the lady that was supposed to take over for me left, due to the unrest Egypt experienced during the protests and demonstrations.

On my last day, I surprised the kids with McDonalds Happy Meals. I had called all of the parents the night before and told them I wanted to surprise the kids and not to send them any lunch. Well, it was quite funny at snack time when the kids discovered their Moms hadn't sent them any lunch. I told them I would share my pretzels with them for lunch, and they seemed quite pleased with that. As you can see above, they enjoyed their Happy Meals.

Also, one of the little girls and her Mom surprised me with a beautiful bouquet of flowers. Aren't they beautiful?


  1. Congrats! On a sidenote...I LOVE your sweater!

  2. Thanks Sarah! I had to go back in today to stay with the new teacher all day, but I don't have to go back tomorrow! Yay!

  3. just want to thank you for everything you did to these children. they are missing you.

  4. Beautiful bouquet and beautiful children! I'm glad you are now able to homeschool your sons. I had wished I could do that with my sons, but my husband, being a public school teacher insisted that they would all go to public school.
