My students know how to spoil me, and my birthday is no exception.
For the past two years, I've been showered with love and gifts on my birthday from my current group of 8th graders. It will be strange next year when they're at the high school and my birthday goes back to being just another normal day.
For today's #SOL, a picture show featuring some of the random emails, notes, homemade gifts, and Hauptsteen birthday memes I received today.
