Tress Class, We Honor You for Being Creative

June 22, 2022 | Sossi Essajanian

It has been wonderful to honor each child these final weeks of school. The teachers have also been thinking about the class as a whole.

So here are some final honoring words…

Trees Class, we honor you for being creative.

There are so many things you’ve created this year: books, bear houses, games, songs, block structures, paintings, drawings, drama stories, dance parties, and when we were hungry, mud soups and grass salads! Sometimes you were inspired by books you heard, sometimes you were inspired by what your friends started, sometimes you were inspired outside by nature, and even when you heard the Senorita Mariposa song at snack time.

When you create, you joyfully add more and more details and ideas. Once an idea starts, you all join in together to make it grow. Everyone added something to make it more beautiful and then you get together to share it. Remember when someone started to write friendly notes and cards? You all went around to find the name of a friend and drew a picture for them. There were so many different and beautiful cards! You know how to make people smile and be happy with your gift of creativity.

Trees Class, we honor you for being creative.

With love from your teachers,

Ms. Essajanian and Mrs. Chester

Sossi Essajanian

Teacher, Sky Class

Sossi Essajanian is excited to continue her teaching and learning journey at the Mustard Seed School. She began teaching at the United Nations International School where she worked with children and colleagues from around the world. This inspired her to take a primary teaching position abroad in Nicosia, Cyprus, where she lived and worked for two years.

Ms. Essajanian has a passion for supporting children’s social/emotional skills and learning through a loving and caring classroom community. These are built on creating shared understandings and opportunities for children to identify and express their feelings and of those around them. She believes in creating experiences through pair and group work where learning blossoms through social experiences.

Ms. Essajanian also enjoys reading and talking about books and continues to pursue her second passion: editing. She’s worked in various editorial capacities in newspapers, magazines, and books. She was recently excited to serve as the development editor of a children’s book about engineering and is looking forward to leading some tinkering investigations of her own with her students!

In her free time Ms. Essajanian runs, swims laps, and likes to take long walks to explore the world around her.
