Letters to the Teacher

I love getting letters or notes from my students.  They tend to either put a smile on my face, or crack me up.  Here is one I thought was particularly sweet.  This girl tried to disguise her identity by writing on the front of the card...

To: Mrs. J  
From: Dee? or Deb?
hope you get this right Mrs. J

I found it particularly entertaining that the mysterious student who wrote the note (which was a dead give away from her handwriting anyway) continuously asked me for the next several days if I found a surprise on my desk.  (My desk often gets messy and it took a few days to dig through the rubble to find the gold).  Here is what was inside my card...spelling as student wrote it of course...

Dear, Mrs. J (I must note she also spelled my very phonetically sound last name incorrectly)
I thank you for every thing you do I think you do just fine.  You husbend shoud be greatfull your his wife.  

(she only signed D because I was of course supposed to be very puzzled by which D it was!)

I must say, my job has it's perks most days!  And when I want to pull my hair out because a kid is throwing a temper tantrum, or when my bipolar Principal goes crazy, it's little things like this note that make it all worth it.  And apparently my husband is supposed to think I am totally worth it too!
