The Last Days

Well today marks that day that every school age kid/teen dreams about – the last week of school.  I am sitting here watching my 2nd hour class take their final.  We have 2 days left if this with the students having  a half day on Wednesday and then it’s summer.  Crazy that I still live my life by the ways of school aged people but I wouldn’t have it any other way.  I started my class off with a little speech about how proud of them I was and I realized I had to stop before I burst into tears.  You would think I would be used to this by now – the changing of students every year the students graduating and going on to bigger and better things but each year it gets a little harder.  I have to say this has been my favorite year of teaching thus far.  I have loved every other year but for some reason this year was amazing for me.  I feel as if my classrooms became communities where students respected each other and worked hard.  That’s not to say I didn’t have bad days – because I did but the good days far outweighed the bad.  So if you are looking for a great career I would always recommend teaching.  It’s not easy and some days you just don’t think you can go on but in the end the rewards are so great that I go home quite often and say wow this is what I get to do every day:)  I am leaving you with an article about our school.  Click on the word school.  I think this article says it best about our school and the students who go here.

Happy Monday!
