My body is begging me for a break and is slowly trying to recuperate from the past three months of go-go-go.
Last Friday was my last day of student teaching.
Holy moly, where did the time go?
I woke up that morning with a bundle of emotions: excitement, happiness, relief, sadness, and even quite a bit of anxiousness. I gotsta find me a job!
But by the end of the afternoon, there was no room in my heart for anything but JOY! My sweet fourth graders and amazing host teacher threw me a surprise going away party. The principal was in on it, and she brought me into a room full of my fourth graders, treats, tons of gifts, and even parents! I was completely overwhelmed and have never felt so grateful and thankful. I didn't feel worthy of such treatment! Needless to say, there were some tears shed...and not just mine. And, I've never gotten so many hugs in my life.
What a blessing. My student teaching experience was better than I could have ever imagined. I am now praying HARD to find a job and am trying to be hopeful and have faith that I will find the right job for me. But, I am so lucky to have the experience I did...
Goodbye Gifts. I made my little ones bookmarks with their initials.
