Bittersweet…


The end of the school year is swiftly approaching…and…that always means…change…this year is no exception…in fact…big changes are coming for my school…we will no longer be a K-12 school…my little ones will be merging with another local school…and we will be 7-12 for the future…

Now…let me say first…from an academic and budget standpoint…I fully support the decision…I understand the rationale…but…on a purely personal level…it really bites…

I love my babies…I love the Elementary teachers…I love walking into that hall and being bombarded with hugs…I love the sounds when they are on the playground…I love the energy that little ones bring to my day…

Of course…I also love the high school students…I love the high school teachers…they have their own special energy…and I’m happy to keep them…I just wanted both…I like the variety…

Bertha…reminds me…that even when it is for the best…change…isn’t always easy…

And…for once…I don’t even argue with her…
