Last Day...

This morning my heart is full... full of happy, sadness, excitement and nerves. Today is my last day teaching preK, my last day as a staff member, my last day for everything I've 'known' for the last 7 years. I can't believe I've been there for 7 years... as a parent and as a teacher.

It will be hard to say goodbye to my students today, hard to wish them well tonight, hard to say goodbye to all of the wonderful families, hard to say goodbye to the staff that has watched me flounder (in every way), grow and learn.

But, it is time to jump out of 'comfort' and press forward. I've worked hard to attain my goals and at some point you just have to go for it.

So, here I go... scared, nervous and excited.

Thanks Rachel-- wish you could have been here! I have a few items to put in the mail for miss K.

Shelly -- Trying to find a teaching job in the Vancouver area (along with the rest of the out of work teachers). I'm looking forward to my next step... kind of crazy to leave a job when you have one :)
