A Letter to Sloan's Teacher

"An Apple for the Teacher"

Dear Mrs. Prouty, 

If I had millions and millions of dollars I would give some of it to you. Since I don't, I am giving you this apple instead. You spend your days doing what many only wish they had enough patience to do. Teaching our little ones all the things that we had to learn oh so many years ago. You are a  super hero of sorts. You must be. You do all the things super hero's do except without a cape. Thank you for being such a wonderful teacher to Sloan. I hope you have a Merry Christmas with your family and a very happy New Year.

Yours Truly,
Summer Swanson

Very nice. I wish I had a million dollars for all the good teachers my children have had too. Nice way to honor a teacher - thank you for sharing.
