Today was in the last day of school. It was crazy! Actually, my students were out of control! There was nothing my classroom teacher or I could do to get it back together. It was kind of sad because one student had to leave school because he could not get his behavior under control. It is upsetting that the last memory of him is him loosing control and hitting other students. My poor classroom teacher’s last encounter was him slamming the door on her. She is a much stronger person than I am. I think I would have lost it right there and then but she held it together.
I still dont think it has really hit me that I will never see any of these kids again. They live far away and I am probably going farther away. The part that actually makes me a little sick is the possibility that I won’t see my classroom teacher or the teacher’s aide. I will see the teacher again tomorrow but after that who knows?
I have to go to work now. I am sure there will be more later because I have just begun to process all this and now have to go to my second day of my new job.
Well, here goes. Goodbye students and routine I got used to. Hello quiet days with no one poking me and repeatedly calling my name. Hello new job and stress over searching for a teaching job. Yikes!
