1: "Teaching children is my passion and after 21 years in the classroom I can honestly say that I still LOVE it!" -- Diane Trahan Dear Mrs. Trahan, Your love for teaching is evident in everything you do. The 2011-2012 St. Anne's 5th graders have been blessed to have you as a teacher for two years in a row. You have enthusiastically taught them day after day, encouraging and supporting their efforts while easing them out of their comfort zones. You have cheered their successes and hugged away their disappointments. You have been their teacher, their mother, their counselor, their friend. But have you ever wondered how they feel? Are they as enthusiastic about learning as you are about teaching? Will they take away anything you have tried so eagerly to teach them? How will they reflect on the past two years? To find out the answers to these questions, turn the page and enter the hearts of your potato heads.....
