We're about to lose a 2nd 6th grade teacher this year at the middle school. Having seen how the 1st teacher's departure impacted the kids, I can only imagine how they'll feel when the 2nd one leaves! The teacher leaving will be a huge loss as he's been there for over 15 years but he found a new opportunity that he applied for and got. I see this as a chance to develop some sort of leadership role as a veteran teacher leaves and the newer ones like myself stay. Plus, with the upcoming admin changes, I dunno what to expect.
