Advice To My Middle School Self.

 Although my bulletin board is not complete, I thought that I would share with you it's humble beginnings.  A few weeks ago, I asked our teachers to write a letter to their middle school self.  What is the advice that they would have for themselves at that time?  The responses are starting to come in and I have to admit they are pretty good.  

My advice:

Dear Self,

Middle School is hard.  Kids can be mean at times.   Always be kind to people no matter what.  You never know what someone else's life is really like.  You will understand so much more when you are older.  Love Yourself--Always.  Stay true to your goals.  You turn out just fine.

Love, me

P.S.  You will not love Bobby your entire life.

    1. Carol, what a neat project! I hope your students enjoy reading the responses. :)

      My advice to my middle school self would be to listen to your teachers (they know more than you think they do), let yourself feel proud, what other people say about you is none of your business, speak up when you have something to say, and stop replacing all your s's with z's...it's not as cool as you think it is.
