This Poem Made Me Think of You

By
Kristin Lewis

Hi teachers,

 

As the holiday season approaches, I wanted to share one of my favorite poems with you: “Three Gratitudes” by Carrie Newcomer. The poem is a refreshing, beautiful take on the Thanksgiving tradition of naming what you’re grateful for.

I can’t help but think of you when I read this poem—of the long hours you spend planning and grading, of the excitement you feel when a quiet student finds the courage to express an opinion, of how you think about your students long after the bell rings, of the work you do every day.

And so I just want to take a moment to say to each of you: thank you.

From all of us at Scholastic Scope, Happy Thanksgiving.

 

Kristin
