    Yay!! Today's my last day with the students--- followed by 5 days of meetings and clean up and 4 days after that of professional development. What a roller coaster ride! A lot of different emotions, some days I thought I was going to give up, but I'm thrilled to be coming back next year :)

    Hurray! You did it! And it's funny how teacher's begin planning for next year already. This year's class barely walked out the door and I was already thinking about next year.

    Congrats!!! It's been a terrible year for me (bad administration, changes in leadership, etc), and I am so thankful that today is the last day! I am already planning for next year...at my new school!

    Congrats!!! In 3 days I can officially say that I finished my first year, as well. Isn't it crazy?!! I honestly never thought I would be able to say I did it. It always seemed like a distant dream, but here I am.

    Oh, congratulations!
    My first year of teaching was one of the worst years of my life.
    Glad you survived!

    Every year I think "summer is soooo far away" and then I blink and there it is! We finished 2 weeks ago and I can't believe it!

    For those of you still teaching - it's almost over! ::unsure:

    Congrats on your 1st year down! Now, in my area, a teacher's considered tenored when they start their 3rd year.

    What is it for you?

    Congrats! Yesterday was our last day with kids and today we had a curriculum camp for next year. Really hard to wrap your brain around next year when the previous kids are barely out the door. Plus we have to make some significant changes to our curriculum this year and I get the task of setting up our new Pre-K program. Lots of stuff to work on right now. Ugh. Where is my summer?

    Why so late, and yes you do have the right to pout. We have been out since May 26th and I don't think that I could have taken another day.

    Congrats to all those who have made it thru their first year.

    Well, at least you may not lose much good beach time, if the local June Gloom stretches well into July the way it has some years.
