I'm done. Never to enter crazytown again.
Never to see my precious firsties when they are silly secondies.
Today we didn't have any kiddos. We had a breakfast this morning, and I thought for sure the other first grade teacher would stand up and say thank you to me for keeping her class afloat for 5 months while she was out this year. Or maybe just to say she enjoyed working with me and that I was a good teacher.
Clearly, I shouldn't think.
Because that didn't happen.
One teacher told me she wanted to say something about me, but didn't in fear of retaliation from administration. How sad is that.
Add that reason to why I can't be upset I'm out of that environment.
Enough of that though. I am so grateful that I got to spend 180 days with such sweet, caring, and intelligent kiddies. I learned so much from them and I am still completely heartbroken that the year is over.
I did finally tell them that I won't be back yesterday. I had a few cry and a few were angry. They do not know any details, just that Mrs. Edwards won't be there when they return in September.
***I want to thank each and everyone of you who have reached out to me through all of this. You will never understand how much you have lifted me up on terrible days. I am honored to be on this journey with you all by my side. Your kind words and prayers have been very much appreciated. For those of you that read my parent letter-WOW you are simply the best blogging friends I could ask for. You were honest but gentle, encouraging but realistic.
Thank you from the very bottom of my heart.
And now on to the next journey in my life...anybody's districts hiring?
