I’m sitting in an empty classroom trying to do inventory, but the silence is deafening. The eighteen desks pushed against the wall and stacked on top of each other makes the room seem enormous in comparison to the normal eighteen 8th grade bodies rushing in here every morning. The brand new carpet that was installed before this school year is already stained and tattered with funny (and not so funny) memories.
It’s hard to believe that a year ago at this time not only was I leaving a school I loooove, but I was leaving a job for no job. I didn’t know where I would live or how I would pay the bills, and amazingly (with billions of prayers) it all worked out. Let me state that again… IT ALL WORKED OUT.
Here’s the proof:
It’s weird to think so much has happened in one year. And to say this year was only filled with great memories would be a complete lie. New adventures mean new adjustments to a life that’s comfortable. Tears have become a normal occurrence for me, and I haven’t felt as defeated in my teaching abilities as I did this school year. However, there has been growth…. a lot of growth. Professionally and personally.
Here in this deserted classroom, with the hum of the fluorescent lights, it’s all hitting me…. If this year turned out so great, I can’t wait to find out what the following years have in store for me.
It’s the LAST DAY OF SCHOOL!!!!!!!
how stressful the day before 8th grade graduation is?PS. My 7th graders from last year graduated tonight and I miss them…
Hey, Miss At, do you like raisins?
Heck yes I do!
Ewwww! That's disgusting! That's like eating old people!
