From the desk of Miss Cheryl…………. Dear Parents, I wanted to thank-you again for sharing your very precious children with me and choosing Cherry Hill Pre-School as your child’s first school experience. Without them I cannot do the job I love with all my heart! I was recently doing some research and found that a parent a few years ago sent this beautiful description of a teacher. I would like to share it with you. Star Polisher I have a great job in the universe of occupations. What do I do? I’m a “star polisher.” I have a very important job. If you want to know how important, just go out at night and look at the stars. Twinkling and sparkling. You see I’m a teacher. The stars are in my class. My job is to take them in- In whatever shape they’re in- And shine and buff them and send them out to take Their places as bright little twinkling beacons in the sky. They come in my room in all shapes and sizes. Sometimes they’re bent, tarnished, dirty, crinkly, and broken. Some stars are prickly and thorny. I tell them that the world cannot do without them. I tell them they can do anything they set their minds to do. I tell them they can be the brightest, shiniest stars in the sky And the world will be a better place because of them. Each night as I look at the sky, I’m reminded of my very Important job and awesome responsibility. I go and get my soft buffing cloth and my bottle of polish in preparation For tomorrow and for my class of little stars.
One final note~ I began putting together advice for parents on several parenting concerns several years ago due to the many questions that were presented to me. I hope they have helped you throughout the year. I would like to leave you with two excellent quotes on child-rearing that I strongly believe in. Have a wonderful, safe and sunny summer! Best wishes!
