Sad Day...

Today was a sad day. I have wanted to be a teacher ever since I can remember. Some of my favorite toys were a chalkboard and grade book growing up. With all the preparation I was given I was never prepared for what I had to do today. I buried my first student. Nic died in a tragic accident on Sunday evening. I can't not even imagine the pain his family and friends are experiencing right now. Please keep them and Bixby high school in your prayers. He was one of my favorites. Nic was such a sweetheart! He was one of the most adorable students at BHS and a total charmer to boot. I will greatly miss his sweet smile and cheerful personality! I am so proud of the young man that Nic was. He will be greatly missed!!!

I saw this quote today on a blog and it was exactly what I needed to hear. Thank you Lord for always placing things in our paths!

This is Nic... I know he is just the most precious kiddo!

Nic I truly believe that today was not a goodbye but a see you later!!!




  1. I am so incredibly sorry to hear this! I'll be keeping you, Nic's family, and Bixby High in my prayers.
