One day left #SOL15
I see hope, fear, exhaustion and excitement. My first year in a classroom bigger than 8 x 8 feet. A new adventure.
Tomorrow is the last day.
I still feel hope - will the kids remember the high points of this year? Daily 5, field trips, making friends.
I still feel fear - did I do enough to prepare them for 2nd grade? For college and careers?
I still feel exhaustion - teaching is a full-bodied, brain-draining profession.
I still feel excited. Each morning is a new day, a fresh start.
Tomorrow is the last day. It's been a year of roller coaster emotions.
