Jamie and Cory
How We Met
I am a Kindergarten teacher and Cory was working as Therapeutic Support Staff. Cory was assigned to work with a student in the classroom next door to me. Eventually, he was placed with a student in my class and the rest is history!
How He Asked
On Friday, September 9th, 2016, it was quitting time at my school and my classroom phone rang. It was one of our assistant principals requesting that I come to her office. Of course, I thought the worst! Who gets called to the principal’s office at quitting time on a Friday? Upon arriving at the office, I found both assistant principals waiting for me! They were chit chatting with me about things that I really thought could wait until Monday! Finally they told me that there was another reason that they needed to see me and they pulled a beautiful arrangement of roses out from under the desk!
At this point I was extremely confused until I read the card that said “Roses are Red, Accept this Ring, Will you marry me? I’m in the Kindergarten wing!” I was in complete shock! A little background on the roses is that when we started dating I was playing “hard to get” and Cory would send me a dozen of roses almost every Friday until he finally won me over! When I went back to the Kindergarten wing, I found Cory on one knee in my classroom (essentially in the spot where we fell in love) with the most beautiful ring I ever could have imagined!
