I actually remember what I dreamed about last night. Honestly that doesn't happen very often. I personally think I am so exhausted that I don't dream. Anyway, last night, I was saying goodbye to my classes and telling them that I would miss them. I have one period in particular which was by far the best behaved. This class was also my smallest which I loved because I felt like I could teach instead of manage! :) This was the period I was dreaming about.
Well, maybe it is a self fulfilling prophecy but as I was telling these kids goodbye today, I started to get teary eyed. I sure am going to miss seeing them every other day!! I told the kids about my dream and thanked them for being so amazing. Several of them came up and gave me (side) hugs--totally practiced this skill last year while I was an EFY counselor. I am grateful EFY taught me so much, including the hip swivel/ bump thingy to dodge full blown frontal hugs. LoL! Anyway... I know these kids, and all of my classes, will go far in life! I hope I run into them in some unplanned place in the future.
I can't believe it--I am HALF WAY through with student teaching and now completely finished with JR. HIGH! As I walked out of the school today, it was kind of an odd feeling, knowing that I'm not coming back on Monday. My darling sweetheart came and picked me up and we were able to leave hand in hand (and carrying a ton of stuff). Goodbye Jr. High Kiddos!
