So today my kids and I attended a graduation party for a family friend. Tomorrow she will graduate from high school with 128 of my students from this year. It is hard to believe that I have finished yet another year as a teacher. It is also crazy that I will go to another graduation and watch my students start out into the world. After nine years of teaching it seems that I have seen a lot of kids go through my classroom. I know that as I continue to teach I will see even more students pass through my classroom. In another couple of years I will be watching my own daughter graduate. Life is short and I have to continue to move forward.
