Today is the last day of school….
Some of these students I will miss….some of the I will NOT miss. THere is an air of thankfulness around the school today and it’s actually nice. I think some students are happy they don’t have to come back to junior high. I remember leaving Burkholder middle school and promising I would never go back. I maintain firmly that junior high was the hardest years of my life. I was awkward physically and emotionally….I hardly remember anything about what I learned. I remember Mrs. Terry and Mr. Ziegler….I think there was a Mr. Springer too.
So I can empathize with what these kids are going through. I don’t excuse it…but I can empathize. But today I say goodbye…good riddance in a lot of cases. My room is bare, my car is packed and my heart is light. I think this is going to be an enlightening summer.
