...I must confess I want to leave, Leave! 💗 🎶🎵

Repost @Britney Spears

Can I just tell you that we miss you all so much! Every face, every student, every parent, every sibling, every grandparent—we miss you all beyond words.

We miss the little ones who run in in the door to give us hugs each week. We miss the parent’s chatter in the lobby.

We miss students who are always early, we miss the one’s who are always late. And we miss the students who forget their dance shoes.

We miss the young ones who cry and whimper when they miss their parents. We miss the “grown up girls” determination when two pirouettes turn into three.

We miss our devoted teachers who give so much more than you’ll ever know.

We know this trial will end and this separation will too. Until we can get together again, missing you all so dearly will simply have to do. 💜💗💜
