    Last day with the students was yesterday. It was so bittersweet. I am going to miss my 8th graders so much. I gave a little speech at their ceremony and choked up a bit. I am such a sentimental person and I am genuinely so happy that I got to meet and teach them.

    How were your last days? I find myself already planning for August, ha! It is so weird to know that I am not teaching in a couple of days.

    Congrats! I just finished my second year teaching 8th grade. I didn't cry last year, but was the most teary one on my team this year. I made some serious connections with some kiddos this year, and I was really sad to see them go. A lot of the kids were crying, too!

    I still have more cleaning to do in my classroom, but I'll be doing a lot of work for the upcoming school year during the summer. I'm taking two classes (online), organizing and implementing a new curriculum for 8th grade ELA, and teaching summer school at the beginning of August.

    Congratulations! I will be sad when my time with my class is over - they are GREAT - but I can't wait to no longer be a first year teacher myself!! It's so great to feel like I at least sort of maybe mostly kind of know what I'm doing! :D 13 more days for me! :)
