It's here. The last day of school--well, the last day with students. Students are out early and I will have time to evaluate writing portfolios and enter the grades. I still will have to come back on Tuesday to finish up last minute "teacher duties", but I. Am. Done.

It's been a long year. More classes, more kids, more stress. A lot of drama (it is high school after all). A lot of SSB nonsense. Teacher cuts. Principal resigning. Angry parent. Today is a day I just want to be done.

I read through old posts and realize that I had a really good year!  Reason 791 why blogging is a good thing!

Students grateful for any help you give them. Successful speech season ( and another speech post). Really creative students in all classes. Battle of the Books and kids who like to read. All-State performers. Former students who stay in touch! Students who just make me laugh.

OK--enough of the linking to posts. I guess the point I made to myself is that I had a great year teaching a lot of great kids. I am ready for summer, but come August, I will be ready for school.


  1. Hurrah for you, Deb. I hope the day is now finished for sure; maybe the lake beckons? I get the Daily Poem & today was such a great poem that fits your final day. Here's the link:

    Have a great holiday weekend!

  2. Congratulations! It looks like you did have a great year. I have 2 weeks to go. I can feel the end of the year frenzy in your writing. Looks like you definitely had your fair share of drama too! Enjoy your summer. Looking forward to lake stories and anything else you feeling like writing. :)
