Mrs. Prior set up a gallery of each students best work in the classroom.
During the awards presentation, she called up each student individually and presented them with a trophy for an individual strength throughout the year in art class. I was really impressed with Mrs. Prior's passion, awareness and understanding of each student.
Listening and watching Ethan receive his award was more then my little tear ducts could bear!
(He was also proudly wearing the ribbon he earned at CBS for reciting his Bible verses.
He's worn it just about every day since receiving it last Wednesday.)
Mrs. Prior gave Luke a chance to explain the art work he received an award for. I was so surprised by his public speaking! What a wonderful opportunity for him and for me. This was pretty shocking for my shy guy. Again, I had to bite my lip to keep myself from blubbering.
As a homeschooling mom, I don't have many opportunities to hear positive feedback on the boys strengths. I'm usually their only evaluator. To sit and listen to this feedback was truly a gift from God. What a wonderful experience! I'm thankful for Mrs. Prior and so proud of ALL the students.
