Mrs. Kerri Cox-Stiverson, Brianna's Speial Guest

It’s time to go to the beach! I had better get my sunscreen on the way to the beach today. I think I will stop at the store. Oh, did you know that Mrs. Kerri, Brianna’s mom is the person who supplies the stores with sunscreen? I wonder which one I should get? I think I will pick one that is a high SPF to protect my skin from the sun. Mrs. Kerri told me today that an SPF of 85 will help keep my skin safe but that I need to reapply it every hour and half. When Mrs. Kerri is not working she loves to spend time with Brianna and her husband. I am thankful that I learned how to keep my skin safe today by listening to our special guest Mrs. Kerri.

It's 6:00 in the morning and she has already laid out clothing for her 3 children to wear, picked up the house and started breakfast for the kids. Mrs. Tara Davis, Brianna's special guest is a stay at home mom. Today we learned how much work that involves! Mrs. Davis shared that there is nothing she rather do than to take care of her family and spend time with them! She told us that she feels very lucky to be able to stay at home with her children. Mrs. Davis described the rest of the day filled with grocery shopping, house cleaning, errands, cooking, laundry and many other tasks that can arise during the day! We were worn out after listening to all of the things Mom's and Dad's do for us that we hadn't thought of before! Therefore, our class would like to say thank you to all of our Mom's and Dad's and caregivers! After our special guest today we realized that it is a very hard job.

Mr. Bill Boggs, Cap's Special Guest

Our special guest today came all the way from Virginia to be with us! I wonder if he drove his car here or maybe flew a plane. A plane, you ask? Yes! Today we interviewed Mr. Bill Boggs, Cap's special guest. Not only is he a pilot, he is also a flight instructor with the F.A.A. As a child Mr. Bill's father took him to an air show where he found his inspiration to become a pilot! He told us that as second graders we are already learning the basics to flying; weather, angles, and taking notes. We know there are many other things we would need to learn but it was exciting to hear that we are learning about skills he uses in his job. We also role played how important it is for pilots to communicate with Air Traffic Control and scenarios of situations that could occur during flights. Mr. Bill works with the Civil Air Patrol whose job is to help planes who have lost contact with Air Traffic Control or are experiencing another emergency situations. When Mr. Bill is not working he enjoys spending time with his family. They especially like to visit the beach. Mr. Bill grew up as the youngest of five children in his family in Greenville, South Carolina! Some of his favorite things are the color blue, Italian food and his 3 cats. Mr. Bill fascinated us with is job as a pilot. We were so interested in his special tools that he uses to navigate his planes in the sky. We are so thankful he and his wife made the trip from Virginia to be with our class today as Cap's special guest! Thank you for sharing your story with us!

Mrs. Nicole Kassen, Dominic's Special Guest

If I ever need to go to the hospital, I will go to the Grand Strand Regional Medical Center. While I'm there, I hope my nurse will be Mrs. Kassen. Did you know that Mrs. Kassen's job is being a nurse? Most nurses have a uniform that includes white shoes, white pants and a white shirt. Now you know how to identify most nurses at the hospital! Mrs. Kassen has known from a very young age that she wanted to be a nurse. Besides her job, Mrs. Kassen has many hobbies that includes reading, exercising, and walking on the beach! After growing up in the middle of the United States of America in Nebraska, Mrs. Kassen has grown a deep appreciation for living near an ocean! She truly enjoys living so close to the beach now! Mrs. Kassen enjoys a family tradition of eating Sunday dinner together each week with her family. We learned through her interview that Mrs. Kassen has a gift for helping others. Hopefully, she has inspired some of us to be more like her and help others in any way we can! Who knows, maybe one day, someone in our class will become a nurse just like her! Thank you for sharing your heart today Mrs. Kassen!

Today's special guest, Miss Katy Sellers is very special to our class. She has helped us grow as writers and thinkers since the beginning of the school year! We learned many things about her today that we never knew before! For example, did you know that Miss Sellers loves to cheerlead and would like to do it in college? She hopes attend the College of Charleston next year. While at Charleston, Miss Sellers will continue her pursuit of becoming a teacher. Our class asked her how she became inspired to teach and she told us it was because of her 1st grade teacher! How wonderful!
