One would think after twenty-three years as a classroom teacher, I would relish the ending of another school year, but one would be wrong. Tomorrow is the last day of school for both students and teachers and as always it's going to be bittersweet for me. I love the prospect of summer and all the freedom it brings, yet I know I'll miss ALL the students who bring so much joy and happiness to my life; some of these students will be leaving our school as graduates! Fortunately, we're a fairly small community so I will see many of my students randomly throughout the summer, but its just not quite the same as seeing them everyday... Perhaps, just perhaps... I'll know it's time to retire when I start counting down the days until summer break right after Christmas break; until then I will relish my summers while anticipating my return to the classroom and ALL my terrific kids!!!
