Saying goodbye This week has been full of many kinds of goodbyes ... I've been trying to remind myself: It's not goodbye forever -- it's until we meet again. To staff and colleagues waving through a computer screen To my students through snail-mail in a postcard To fifth graders moving on to junior high To trusted teachers and staff at my daughters' school To the last two months of doing school online To a school year full of joy and hope ... and strife and stress To the last day of school today Saying goodbye is always hard. But closure is necessary to move on. So goodbye until we meet again. And hello summer.
