Graduation was tonight, and it was a rough one. We had a student pass away in February, so that was hard. And I'm not returning next year, so that was hard. And just in general, graduation is always tough for me. Not because I'll miss the kids -- which, of course, I will -- but because I don't do well with change. Anyone else struggle with graduation? On another note, I thought the tribute to the student was beautiful. He was actually a second year senior and had finished in December, so he did graduate. His parents got his diploma, cap, and tassle (tassel?). They read his name in alphabetical order with the rest of the kids, since he was a part of the graduating class just like everyone else. I hadn't really dealt with the pain of losing him yet, and it finally hit me.
