Can’t Believe the Day Has Come

I finished my last lesson. I don’t feel good. I don’t feel free. Why? I’ve come to understand that I loved teaching all those students and working with so many wonderful people. It’s not easy saying goodbye. This feeling sucks.

  1. For me, I got that feeling at the end of every school year. After spending 8 hours a day for 180 days of the year with the same group of kids, it was tough to see them go. Even the pain in the necks. My only consolation was that I’d get to see them from time to time around the school. Then I left completely and knowing that I wasn’t going to see them again was tough. You get to know them so well since they spend more time awake with you from Mon.- Fri. than they do with their own parents. It’s not easy, but it won’t last long…

  2. There are many reasons that I always knew I’d be a terrible teacher, but this is definitely on the list. It would suck to get so close to a bunch of kids and then have to leave them behind. I don’t know if I could handle that.

    1. It was always hard to say goodbye to students. I had to do that all year every year. Someone left, sometimes without me even knowing until after they were gone. I was just never told.
