46: To the greatest pair of teachers and the most wonderful partnership to grace a classroom, There are so many reasons why the culmination of this year is a bittersweet one. Although it will be a year of many changes and new beginnings, it will also be the ending of many more things that I might not be ready for. For six years, you have been a constant in our lives. Clay has grown up in your arms- from an infant crawling around the braided rug, to a toddler standing at your door demanding entry, and finally a three year old eager to stay the entire day. He is now an independent, confident, able child ready to move into the Elementary environment, and I thank you for that. I thank you for knowing him so well, reading his thoughts and motives, challenging him, enjoying him, and bringing out the best in him. Once again, you have given one of our children the best three years of his young life and taught Tim and I so much about Montessori, patience, appreciation, joy, and beauty. I'm not so sure I am ready to not have you as our teachers anymore, but since I don't have a choice, I will say thank you again, tell you how much we all love you, and wish you the best life has to offer. You will be missed! Tim and Julianna Chapman | Words cannot express how grateful we are to Mrs Seale and Mrs Sterns! Over the last two years that Josephine and our family have been part of the MSO community, we have watched proudly as Josephine has developed by leaps and bounds. Thank you for being such kind and loving teachers and for helping Josephine reach to meet your high expectations. We will always be thankful that under your guidance Josephine had the best two years imaginable and we will never forget the dynamic duo of Mrs Seale and Mrs Sterns! Thank you. Phil & Suzanne Tromans | Mrs. Seale, thank you for being such a wonderful teacher to Ishan, who will surely miss you very much. We appreciate your persistence with him and your efforts to help him grow into a focused and motivated learner. We are sure that he will always carry with him the Montessori work and social habits that you helped instill in him. We wish you all the best with your move and all future endeavors. " Thank you Mrs. Sterns for being such a kind teacher to Ishan. We appreciate your patience with him and your efforts to help him adjust to the environment when he first arrived at MSO, last year. His comfort level with you was a big factor in his favor to transition smoothly. He will surely miss your reassuring presence as he moves on to first grade. Anu Ramesh

47: Mrs. Seale and Mrs. Sterns, Thank you so much for the wonderful 3 1/2 years. You have provided the children with such beautiful environment for learning, topped with your love, patience, and wisdom. Walking into your classroom and seeing you interact with each child, has been such an inspiration. How many times have we asked ourselves: "What would Mrs. Seale or Mrs. Sterns do in this situation?" Thank you for being that steady guidance to us parents. More importantly, you have made a beautiful contribution to Christopher's first three years of early childhood. You have instilled in him the unending curiosity, love of learning and his community, and sense of confidence, for which we will be grateful for years to come. We have been truly blessed to have you as teachers, and we will miss you very much. Sam and Yooni Lee | We thank you both for your tireless and sincere efforts in getting Musa ready for his next big step in life. You were truly a blessing in our lives. You made Musa’s transition from a Montessori school in Oregon to the MSO seamless. You worked with your unending patience in finding his motivation to develop his phonics and writing skills. Your encouragement and positive attitude has boosted his confidence. Your paved way taught him to love not just the things that seemed “fun," but those he shied away from initially. For this we will always be grateful. We know that this foundation of learning that you have laid in our child’s life is going to benefit him greatly as he develops and explores more. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making Musa’s first experiences with school such a positive one. Please know that he has loved every second of it. Shazia Malik and Haroon Shah P.S. May I (Shazia) take this opportunity to also thank you both for your kindness in helping me by walking Musa to the car at every single pick-up in these past two and a half years, while I comfortably waited with my sleeping infant/toddler in the car. It has meant a lot to me. Thank you!
