End of year reflection

It’s June 2nd.
School ends on June 19th.
That’s only 17 calendar days away;
13 school days until summer vacation,
and, I dread saying goodbye to my students,
even though we’re all more than ready to leave school behind for fun, lazy summer days.

I will miss…
greetings in the mornings.
unsolicited hugs.
my crown and the title of class monarch.

I will miss…
Socratic Seminars.
reading aloud to my students.
quick writes.
and collaborating with my grade level partner.

I will miss…
trips to the library.
lunchtime conversations.
professional talks with colleagues.
and my goofy, exasperating, brilliant students.

I look forward to…
moving from grades 6 and 7 to grade 5.
a new group of students.
teaching the PYP.
ramping up technology in my classroom.
keeping my students for the whole day.
teaching math and science.
and some stability for the next few years.

I look forward to…
new collegial collaborations.
Genius Hour.
Mystery Skypes.
global connections.
and many more hugs and laughs.

Here’s to a smooth end to this school year,
a restful, productive summer,
and the anticipation of a new beginning to a wonderful school year.

Here’s hoping the same to all of you.
