Candid Teacher Admits: Now that the end of the year has come, I’m not ready to go.
Sure, I’m tired of a certain few students. Sure, I look forward to sleeping in. Sure, I can’t wait to go to the beach while everyone else is at work.
But I will miss many of my students, and it’s hard to leave knowing I won’t get to see them in the halls as first graders. I was also looking forward to seeing last year’s students become second graders. They’ll be fine without me, but I’ll miss them.
I am really excited to finally get a chance to breathe a little. It’s been so busy – testing, report cards, packing my room, wrapping up the end of the year, interviewing, etc. However, if I don’t get a new job, I’ll be “breathing” far longer than I want to be!
Right now it’s time for me to get ready for an interview.. fingers crossed that it goes well so I can continue being “Candid Teacher”. Without the job, my identity suffers.
