I had a post nearly finished for today’s slice of life, but that post will have to wait until another day. I had to say goodbye to a student this afternoon, and while I’m glad that I was able to say goodbye, I realized how much I am going to miss working with this child. This student came to us a little over a year ago and watching him grow as a learner has been one of the most amazing experiences of my career. C made a significant amount of progress over the past year. However, I also enjoyed working with him because he is just one of those kids that you enjoy being around. He is the student who asks you about your day and on Fridays, would say, “Have a good weekend!”
So, tomorrow, at 12:00, C won’t enter my classroom with a smile and cheery “Hello.” While my classroom will be different now, I am thankful for the opportunity to have had C as a student and I wish him all the best at his new school!
