I am pretty sure “cool” is the word my 5th grader used to describe his first day with this teacher. It is pretty difficult for me to share just why his 5th grade year needed to be a good one, but let’s just say that my first meeting with Mrs Waldron was filled with some tears from me. She probably thought I was a nut case, but she made me comfortable enough to cry during that first chat, so I think that speaks volumes about her.
Fast forward a year and we finally got together with her awesome family to do some photos. I truly had a blast with them and feel that I am now “part of the family.” They just make you feel that way:) I even was forced to get in a picture which you can see at the end of the post!
The most exciting part of this post is that this teacher just happened to be named Teacher of the Year for our local school system just a few days after we shot this session. And having had a child in her room, and seeing the way she transformed his life that year, well, this award couldn’t have been more well deserved.
I love you Conner Waldron, thank you for the gift of loving my boy last year. You will never know the impact it had on him….and us. I feel blessed to call you not just my child’s teacher, but also my friend. And please, no more trees silly girl:)
