Yesterday was the last day of school. I already told the kids last week that I’ve been RIFed for next year. They’ve said a lot of kind words to me. There are other teachers who won’t be back for various reasons. Rosie organized a good-bye party for us. The kids made us cards, and we all sat together at the end of the day and ate cupcakes and cookies and drank sweet green liquid.
The room was packed full. It was awesome. What a great send-off.
And I love the cards I got. They were all very thoughtful and appropriate, from a card with a tie on it, to a card with a Skyrim theme (which is a video game that I talked about a lot with one of the kids). And there were lots of sparkles. I had said in class how much I like sparkly things. They remembered!
