Today at 3:40 the final bell of the school year will ring. I am counting down the minutes until freedom. The last day of 8th grade this year will be bittersweet. I am still waiting to hear back about my interview and am packing up my classroom as if I am not returning. This would be a great time to leave this school, with a fantastic group of students leaving a better taste in my mouth. I am so so ready for this vacation. Seattle here I come!
