I have been teaching many years and I have witnessed many famous people come and go as heroes in my classroom, but this year I am very pleased that their hero, in this case heroine, is Betty White! The last week of school I allow the children to suggest activities that we did not get to do during the year, writing Betty White was one of their top choices. One young lady in my class loves her so much that she even named her purple scooter "Betty." When I announced that we would attempt to send her a letter they got so excited and thought she may come visit our class. I explained to them that there probably wasn't a possibility of her visiting us and they said if we sent it to "Ellen" she would do it! The above video expresses the excitement of one of my students.
