Dan Santat...

Expressing gratitude is an amazing positive experience, if done correctly. Some folks go overboard, others are more understated. But nothing could have started out my week on a good note than being thanked by my favorite illustrator/author, Dan Santat!

His acknowledgement of me let my students know that it is possible to connect with your mentors and role-models, but more importantly, the validation in gratitude. Thank you Mr. Santat...you're GAWESOME! (My combo of the words "good" and "awesome!")

"Thankfulness is the beginning of gratitude. Gratitude is the completion of thankfulness. Thankfulness may consist merely of words. Gratitude is shown in acts." Henri Frederic Amiel

P.S. Now let's get to reading Crankenstein Valentine...Valentine's Day is on Saturday...gotta let these kiddos know what LOVE is all about! :)
