STAR-DATE: END-OF-SCHOOL May 25, 2012
I am NOT good with endings. I get attached very fast to most things that I aminvolved in and especially to students that I teach 6 hours a day for 175
(depending on furloughs!) days a year. Not to mention their incredible parentsand families.It is always evident to me that the best part of my job is forming bonds withkids and their families.
There is nothing better t
han being around 4, 5 and 6 year-olds!It was an especially difficult transition because while I will see most of my formerKindergartners in the grades to come, I was also saying goodbye somewhatmore permanently to the 5th-grade class at Yick Wo with whom I had becomeparticularly close---since that was the class that EXPERIENCED my PRICE IS RIGHTDebut and having snack with then Mayor Gavin Newsom in our classroom.We bonded and the parents in that class were some I will miss terribly.So after my Kindergarten Graduation which was very emotional to me, Ibasically crashed for 2 weeks straight. I just couldn’t move...
