Today was the last day of school. I've been looking forward to this day for several weeks. The winter was long which seemed to make the school year feel especially long as well. But, I've also been dreading this day a little too.
I was lucky enough to get to teach the same three students for the past two years. These kids were an awesome group. They were so fun to teach and be around every day. I'm going to miss the before the bell visits, hugs, Axe deodorant, their senses of humor, and spending each day with them.
It was very hard for me to say goodbye today. As much as I hate to cry in front of people, I couldn't stop the tears as I got one last hug from "my kids".
Each one took a little piece of my heart with them as they left today.
