This word is emotionally charged. It is both a beginning and an ending. As we enter graduation season, we all reflect on our own days in high school. This year’s graduating class has some special students. I’ve been at my current school for four years. These graduates were in my first classes as I returned to the classroom after an eight year run as Media Specialist in another district.
These students were ready and eager to learn. They have no idea how much I needed them. That first year back was a huge test for me professionally. Their desire and need to learn gave me the confidence I needed. They will always have a special place in my heart.
