We’re spreading the love at CUES! ❤️ What 3rd grade teacher, Ms. Lisa Weidenbach, had to say about her class: There are so many things I love about my class. I love their creativity. The way they play during mask breaks, free time, and recess show just how inventive they are. Their drawings, games, and made up adventures are such a joy to watch. I love their flexibility. When something in our classroom has to change suddenly they just roll with it; no questions, no arguments. What a blessing they are to have in this crazy year! Most of all I love their kindness. This class is kind, helpful, and inclusive of each other. Everyday I see how big their hearts are. I'm so lucky to be their teacher! 💙💛 #cuesproud
