I’ve known that today was going to be a bittersweet day for months. I’ve slowly been preparing for it week after week, picking up and packing up here and there. I was finally brave enough to tell my students just last week.
This morning I finally finished and stared at the madness. I actually started my blog around the same time I got the keys to my very own classroom and captured my excitement in my first post ever.
Not only is it the last day of school, ending my 4th year teaching, but it is also my last day at the school I begun my teaching career at. It’s been an amazing 4 years learning and growing and I’ve worked with some amazing people over the years that I will miss very much. I will miss being apart of the community but with my recent move to Seattle, my blog and designing business blooming, and a new passion coming to form from grad school, I decided it was time for a change.
