We're leaving together, But still it's farewell....It's the final countdown.
On Monday night, the year 10s had their Dinner Dance (semi-formal). This was the first group of year 8s that I was a year 8 coordinator for. So, it was with some sadness that I sat and watched them dance, laugh, talk and have a great time and think that I won't be able to share this with them any more. That I am trading the young adult conversations for a different group of children... *sigh* :(
It is nights like this that I have tinges of sadness for leaving.
In the words of Dr Seuss...
So... be your name Buxbaum or Bixby or Bray
or Mordecai Ali Van Allen O'Shea,
You're off to great places!
Today is your day!
Your mountain is waiting
So...get on your way!
You are all beautiful... Thank you for reinforcing the fact that girls (and guys) like you are the reason for me loving my job as a teacher.
