It's Tuesday? Already?!?! We have eleven days left of school. The end is exciting and sad. Yesterday rising sixth graders came to school to visit. Eighth graders take them on tours and sometimes they stop in the classroom. They look so small, unsure, and nervous. I asked my current sixth graders who came into my classroom last year, and many raised their hands. We talk about their impressions and feelings when they were on that tour last year. It's a full circle moment for them because now they are the "big kids". That lead us into a conversation about then and now. That starts me thinking about where I’ll be next year and how quickly time moves and how grateful I am that I get to witness these amazing students grow and learn and change.
