Ode To Sister Dever

Can I just tell the world how much I love Katie's Sunbeam teacher! She is the best of the best. The kind of teacher you always hope your kids will be lucky enough to get. The kind of teacher that I would try to be like if I ever get to teach in Primary. She always has her lessons prepared and lots of fun activities to go along with them. The kids made their own floor mats out of pillow cases at the beginning of the year. She has sent letters and always greets them specially whenever she meets them out of her class setting. I am just so grateful for her. I remember several weeks following a lesson she gave about the Holy Ghost it was all Katie would talk about. She tells me all the time how much she wants to live with Heavenly Father again. How lucky are we to have such a great teacher!

The topper was today. Sister Dever dropped off a very special handmade card that she had laminated into a place mat and the yummiest looking birthday cake! Katie was soooo excited!!! It was all I could do not to help her eat her cake it looked so yummy!

Here is what Katie loves about her Sunbeam teacher:

*She's never EVER mean
*She brings us snacks
*We make fun things in her class
*She makes me feel so good
*She teaches me about Jesus
*She made me a birthday party

Great post, Jen. Emily Dever is the kind of person I really want to be like, but I know that kind of sweetness is truly God-given. For some reason, I got the mean genes instead. Maybe next time.

I'm glad she's never "ever" mean.

I agree w. Sarah...Emily reminds me of one of the Princesses you meet at the Disney Parks..and not only does she play the character but she stays a Princess all the time and NEVER is mean.
