My classroom is not a quiet, orderly place.
Students are constantly moving, thinking, talking, reading and writing.
I do my best to help my students find success.

Many feelings #SOL16 28/31

That's how I felt as I walked behind Allison, my high school senior, today.  I watched her long strides, walking with purpose, talking with our friend, Kelsey, talking details about college life at Illinois State U.

Quiet.

I stayed quiet as Allison met with an advisor about accommodations.  She asked the questions and got the answers.  I politely answered direct questions and made small talk with the advisor about iPad apps.

Proud.

I feel proud of my daughter.  She's overcome some challenges to get to this campus.  She will have to work hard to keep up with studies, social life and time management.  I think she can do it and so does her dad and the rest of our family and friends.

Grateful.

I'm grateful for friends that will hold me up as I send my baby to college this fall.  

Tired.

We walked 6 miles around campus today! I can't wait to soak my feet tonight!

  8. So many emotions that you have brought into this slice. I know how proud you are of your daughters. This will be an adventure and challenge for both of you, but with the support you are surrounded with, you will get thru it.
