Soon, all of the students knew. They were poking their heads in my door, wishing me happy birthday. My first class requested an entire class restroom break but a few didn't want to go. I opened the connecting door to ask my neighbor to keep an ear out for the students saying behind which turned into a dual classroom concert of Happy Birthday. After first period I received this from the neighboring classroom.
If you look on the bottom right you will see a little drawing of me, bangs and glasses included, from one of the students. All of the students signed the card. Very sweet!
Here is the back of the card. The teacher from that cass is Ms. Love.
