A Year in Review

04 Jan

It’s been too long. I know. And many of you usually receive a Christmas letter from me, too, and you may have noticed that your card got “lost” in the mail this year… So, two birds with one stone, I hope you can take a moment and enjoy reading my year-at-a-glance. Just click on the link below and it will open a PDF file with the letter:


Since I last posted, I have also tobogganed down an active volcano, my kids have done amazing presentations for Thanksgiving, Christmas, and they led chapel, we built models in Social Studies, went caroling around the school, got a new student, and so much more. Here are a few pictures:

Some of my more advanced English language students learned about plays and wrote and performed their very own jungle play.



“Miss Van Kannel-in-Training”                   This was “Dress Like a Teacher Day.” I dressed in a student uniform and they dressed like me. Note the buns and ponytails, dresses, and OF COURSE the glasses!

      Yes, it felt odd not having you all around, but I am glad you got to have some family and sunshine time! Happy New Year!
