I'm not at home enough to have a tree at home so I do my decorating at school. Since I've had the LifeSkills class I've forced myself to give up control of the tree & let the kids decorate it. Some years I can't resist rearranging after school but they did a pretty good job this year. Note the time on the clock...That's PM... See it's dark outside. I've been there late a lot this year.
Under the clock is a framed poem one of my former students , not from LifeSkills, wrote & framed for me when she graduated high school. She just graduated from Johnson & Wales Culinary school last summer & came back a few weeks ago to show me her diploma. Made me cry.

Cindercat, that is a beautiful tree, and a wonderful story about your student. You really enjoy your job and it shows. Your Lifeskills students will really benefit from your caring heart.

I take no credit for how the tree looks in the photo. I brought in a dead evergreen and SO made it look festive and attractive. Then I took the picture.
