Do you have a typical message that you leave in students' yearbooks?
Year after year, I struggle with wanting to leave meaningful messages to my students, especially those with whom I feel a special bond, but there is always a line of students waiting.
A simple signature feels too impersonal to me.
My favorite, which I've used with my seventh graders since my first year teacher, has been
as a nod to The Outsiders, which we read together that year.
My last group of students from my first teaching gig finished high school last week. I sent them a shout out on Instagram and used the hashtag #staygold. They loved it! And I love that they still have such fond memories of that novel and the activities we did in class!
Give me some new ones, guys!
Yearbook signing makes my hand cramp!
