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.
