How He Asked
Teaching is a huge part of my life. On April 13th, I was told my Kindergarten students would be doing a poetry slam in the gym. As I walked them to the gym, a coworker stopped me. We chatted for a good 10 minutes and then she told me we needed to go watch the end of the poetry slam. I walked in the gym and saw kids under table clothes. There were other co workers in the bleachers. I waited and watched at the groups of table clothes stood up unvailing my precious Kindergarten students each holding a letter spelling the message “will you marry me?”
I was confused at first and then I saw my boyfriend come from the gym equipment room followed by my daughter and son and his daughter. Still confused I stood up saying really over and over. He got down on one knee and pulled out the ring and I said yes.
I am so happy that he included my children and my students who I also consider a huge piece of my heart and soul. It was a beautiful moment that I will never forget!
