After attending graduation and leaving the ceremony for Walnut High School’s Class of 2010 a mix of thoughts and emotions ran through my mind and my heart. Being in this position of graduation is just really something different. I attended before as a student, a family member, a spectator, but this time I came as a teacher.
Walking away from the cap and gowns, smiles, hugs, and pictures I began thinking, “that’s that, it’s really over” and “this is what makes it all worth it”. I am in slight disbelief that the people I saw 5/7 days of the week for the last 5-10 months, I will not see tomorrow. Most I don’t think I’ll ever see again. It’s sad to say and believe me even more sad to write out my thoughts as I sit here, but I’m really going to miss them. From my laziest and most annoying students (well maybe not so much, just kidding) to the perfect students that work so hard and say bye to me everyday, they were very much a part of my life. Even if you gave me eternity, I don’t think I could describe what it was like being the teacher for each of my 5 periods. What an experience and at this very moment this peace within me just adds to knowing why I want to be a teacher. ‘Bittersweet’ as they all say when describing graduations. I cannot thank the Lord enough for this year. I am beyond blessed. I am imagining myself starting over from scratch next year with a new group of kids on Day 1 and it is soooo overwhelming! My realization of choosing teaching as a career comes to this: It is not just the experiences I will miss this year, but specifically the students. I hope I did all I could, Lord you do the rest!
Ah yes, moral development in public education. What a challenge to parent a child and teachers have the responsibility and opportunity of ~150 day in, day out. good post tiffany, I couldn’t have put a year’s experience like that in better words, Amen.
Today the seniors were toasted to by the school and they in return gave a toast. Having only taught them for less than a year and knowing them WELL for less time than I have taught them, I still gave a toast. It’s a conflicting thing…
I want all the kids to do well and yet for some I want them to…
