Dear Silver Cluster Families,

Thank you so much for the Teacher Appreciation sentiments!  We were truly touched by your kind words, generous gifts, and all of the videos and drawings from the kids.  We love teaching (in fact, we both knew from a young age that we wanted to be teachers)!  We love working with your kids and as you know we miss them!
