Well after nearly a full decade in seventh grade, I'm moving up to 8th grade! I am excited about this as I have requested to move up for years now and it has just never happened. So, as I celebrated the end of the year this year it was with excitement of the new opportunity to come. I always welcome change and look forward to a new challenge. However, moving my classroom was not a fun way to end the year. As I said goodbye to all of my students it was different from previous years as many of them will have me again next year so it wasn't really a goodbye, but more of a "see you later". I enjoyed taking pictures of the students as they enjoyed their last day as seventh graders and look forward now to hanging my teacher hat up for a few months and enjoying a summer of photography, hat making, and just being a mom.
