Goodbye Miss Clark

Today was our student teacher, Miss Clark's last day. :( The students and I will surely miss her!

Miss Clark

The students all brought in a couple of their favorite books with a personalized message inside. We gave her a "teacher" bag with her name on it. Each child then gave Miss Clark the books and a card. Their comments and kindness really were tearjerkers!


To show her my appreciation, I gave her my ALL TIME favorite teacher book. It's called Mrs. Spitzer's Garden. It paints the picture of a teacher being a gardener, sowing seeds, taking care of the seeds, and helping beautiful flowers to sprout. I just love the message.
I then put together a little bag of treasures to go with the "gardening" theme.

Here are a few of the treasures inside....

Another cute book with a great message for student teachers. She also got the book "Last Day Blues". It's a cute end of the year book. I gave her "First Day Jitters" on the first day of her placement. These two books were written by the same author.

Her very own personalized clipboard.

A pretty little watch that I made for her :)

Best wishes Miss Clark! :)



  1. So cute!! I am sure she felt so blessed!! Thanks for sharing!

  2. Such wonderful ideas! Our school has a lot of turn around for new teachers because we're so big that they end up getting "released" so that seasoned teachers in the county who were surplussed can take their position. This is a great idea for the send offs when we have them. We have yet to say goodbye to a teacher that we're not sorry to see go. New teachers=fresh perspectives and eagerness to learn and improve! Thank you for sharing!

  3. Where did you get that apple!? That is adorable!

  4. I want to be your student teacher!!! lol

  5. Miss M,

    I actually put it together. The apple was something I found at a yard sale or goodwill or something like that. Then I used my Cricut to cut out the letter from vinyl.

  6. Wow! What a wonderful parting gift! I cannot wait to have a student teacher some day to spoil, too! :)
