Dear Santa: Letters from Ann Shackleton's class

-A A +A

Locust Grove Elementary teacher Ann Shackleton said her wish for her first-graders in 2012 is "for each and every one of my students to feel confident in our room and to know they are smart, kind and wonderful!"

Her favorite holiday tradition involves an ornament.

"Each year we write our wish for the New Year and place it in our 'wishes' ornament," she said. "It is fun to read our wishes from last year."

Shackleton said she is excited to "spend time with my wonderful
husband and daughters" during winter break.
