Top Five Things I'm Thankful For

By Jeremy Rinkel
Grades PreK–K, 1–2, 3–5, 6–8, 9–12

    Wow! I cannot believe it is already Thanksgiving week. This week I plan to relax, spend time with family and friends, and reflect on all the people and opportunities I've been blessed with. 

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Top Five Things I'm Thankful For

     

     

    My Family

    I've been blessed with supportive parents, who give me confidence when I'm down. They always encouraged me to do thorough research before making major life decisions. I'm also blessed with a wonderful wife who supports me, and three beautiful children who love me.

     

    My Teaching Job

    I have the opportunity to make a difference to students every day and knowing I am making a difference keeps me walking through the school doors every morning, despite the frustrations I sometimes face.

     

    My Health

    Apart from my gallbladder, which I have to have removed over Christmas break, my health is great.

     

    My Support System

    I have several close friends that I'm very thankful for. I'm also blessed to have great mentors in the teaching field. 

     

    My Opportunity to Write Weekly for Scholastic

    I am very thankful for the opportunity to share my thoughts and ideas with thousands of teachers around the world. 

     

     

     

     

     

    Enjoy the Thanksgiving weekend! Relax and be thankful for the blessings in your life. See you next week!
