At the end of these four days, my teaching partner will be retiring. I taught with her my first year in fifth grade and followed her to the middle school. It has been just the two of us for three years, and I will miss her terribly.
Pool time - My sister opened her pool this week. This is where I spend almost every afternoon during the summer and is where my sister, my daughter and I solve all the world's educational problems.
Graduation Open Houses - My first class of 4th graders are graduating this year. I have enjoyed watching them grow up and become such wonderful role models for my current students. I am honored that some of them of invited me to share their important day.
It is the time of year when we look back and reflect, yet we also look forward to the days ahead. It is the the time of year where we celebrate all we have accomplished and anticipate the celebrations to come.
Have a wonderful week and may you find many celebrations along the way!
