Happy Last Day of Teaching!
So 3240 (paid) hours down, 3.5 hours to go. Half day today.
Today I have to retire one of my most beloved names, Miss Meg.
I feel sad and scared...and yet, after this week with the kids so jacked up and crazy, relieved. Some of these kids I've been teaching for 3 years. Seriously, I think that's too much for any teacher. We've just got to be able to hand them over at some point. I'm ready to see them go on to drive someone else to distraction.
And yet, who am I kidding. I'll always miss them. Hell, I dream about them when we're on break. How can it be that I won't be yelling, "Tone it DOWN, elementary school!" on Monday?
