Just Like the Ending Scene of a Movie

Pin It There are moments in life that - no matter what words we use - will never adequately convey the power of a moment.

This was one of those moments...



If I ever have a movie made about my life, I think that I want this to be the final scene.

What a great way for your class to say thank you. The two boys on the end put a lot of feeling into signing. All of the kids did a great job.

Ignore the email I sent you.. Watched this on IE... ok, that video got me going... yes, the power of kids is amazing... BTW the boy in the red shirt was getting into it... definitely feeling the song.. I think he was touched as well....:-) all that hard work pays off doesn't it?

Connie said...

Very moving. It's obvious you have a great impact on your students!

Gerb said...

None of the kids will forget it either - definitely an awesome moment.

A touching outpouring of gratitude... what a powerful influence you are in the lives of those you teach. It was well-deserved.

When you're having a tough day, watching something like this reminds you why you keep coming back.

Thanks for sharing such a personal tribute. :-)

Just SO said...

That is a wonderful tribute. Love it.

The most powerful part of the video was not the kids singing...
It was you coming to them with your arms open at the end. I am sure that is just how you taught all year...with your "arms" wide open.

My students made a video for me of my 9 years as Student Council Advisor as a thank you when I chose to step down from that position. I watch it from time to time & get that deep, warm, overwhelming feeling of awe when I do.
It makes me think of the day when I meet my Savior face to face & I long to hear from Him, "well done my good & faithful servant".
Well done Mr. Z - well done!

Stacey said...

Wow. An inspiration.

I see a group of kids that put their heart into something for someone that love.

And I think I can pick out who was your "Joey" in that class.

Well done.

Joan said...

*sigh* I love the little blonde boy at the end, trying so hard to get to you and decides to hug in a classmate instead. All of it is moving. =)

tammy said...

That gave me chills. Seriously. Did you get tears in your eyes? And the boy on the end has quite the moves. I couldn't take my eyes of him. That was awesome.

MG Atwood said...

I LOVE seeing what happens in your classroom. Those kids are so fortunate to have you! Yes, it made me tear up a bit. Love the red shirt guy...he's got the moves!

Mikki said...

That was freakin' sweet. What a great group of kids. Terrific teacher too I'm sure. You'll never forget that.

That made my whole Sunday morning....:)

Karen Peterson said...

What a great moment. How lucky you are to get to see those faces every day.

Mindee@ourfrontdoor said...

That made me pleasantly teary. :)

If I know 5th graders at all, I would guess that the blonde/red shirted boy gave you fits for much of the year - and then made up for it with his cheerful enthusiasm at the end.

wendy said...

oh man, this was just SO totally awesome. What a wonderful tribute to you, your hard work, and Caring nature.
I WISH my kids could have had you for their teacher.

because YOU MATTER !! (go visit this blog and see an awesome story on how things matter: heavenlymindedandearthlygood.blogspot.com

I was laughing at the kid in the red shirt. Man, he's got moves, (Napoleon would be proud...tee,hee)
He totally reminds me of one of my grandsons who would have really Gotten into it.

congratulations !!!! what a wonderful thing these kids did for you.

Trevor said...

Very cool! Man that kid in the red is gonna be a wicked good dancer some day!

Cherie said...

I am sitting here crying like a baby!! That was simply soooo amazing. What a wonderful tribute to a well loved teacher.

Richard & Natalie said...

That was awesome! But then again, you are a pretty awesome teacher... :)

ashleestout said...

WOW!

Laura said...

Ok, so that was amazing. What an incredible feeling! And thank you for giving me a glimpse at what my son will no doubt be like in a few years. He's already that boy in the red shirt in the making. :)

Mamma has spoken said...

Glad you fixed the link, I couldn't get it before. Have to say it made me cry this morning. But it also made me laugh because I now know which cutie was your Joey last year!

MzNew Teacher said...

This was great. It's the kind of thing that helps a new teacher keep her perspective. Makes it all worth it, doesn't it? :)
