There is just one more day left of school for my students. Then we have meetings and appointments with them next week to prepare them all for next year. It is hard to believe that we have arrived at this time of the year already, but I have to say that I am really glad for a brief break before starting Summer Scool (during which I will only work one day a week).
There is always a bittersweetness that comes with this time of year for me. I will certainly miss the students who have graduated and moved on, and I will miss the intensity of the school year's fluid activities, but I think I will be able to relish the free-time-that-will-be-me-time that I will have to get my own house (literally and figuratively) in order. I normally go through a period of "mourning" the lack of activity, but I am looking at it with new eyes this year.
