This past week was the city wide day for 6th graders to graduate from elementary school. I only cried three times and I hugged one girl good-bye even though hugging is supposed to be a big no-no. It was a good-bye hug! It doesn’t count! Some of my fellow AETs complain about going to graduation. They call it boring. But, seeing those little faces all grown up in their little formal wear for the last time as my students is something I wouldn’t miss for the world.
Congrats, kids. Good luck in middle school. I’ll miss you all!
