Another High School Year Is Over

Google Images

Every year I get sentimental about the students who are graduating and moving on.
You'd think, that after so many years of working at the high school, I would get use to the students leaving, but I don't.
I will miss Anthony, who is slow but, oh... so wonderful and kind.
I will miss Kimberly, who still needs someone to tell her she is great.
I will miss Jordan who makes me laugh, just by entering the office.
I will miss Mary who was there to helped me out, everyday.
I will miss Noah, who has a very high IQ and I still can't figure out what we were talking about.
I will miss Andre, who just hung around (and needed) to be apart of the office crew.
These students came to my office everyday and helped me do my job.
I got to know them. They trusted me enough, to tell me their teenage problems and also their dreams.
Some of them I have watched grow up, in the three short years at school.
Others came to me for a brief but rewarding time.
I tried to make each of them feel important.
I tried to make memories.
Congratulations Class of 2010!

  1. Oh How sweet you are! obviously you have made each and every one of them feel special and good about themselves!!

  2. Christine are such a sweetheart. I know those kids will always remember you. :)

  3. Wow, class of 2010. That is just amazing to say and hear. I know they will miss you too. God has you there for them for a reason and someday they might look back and remember how you were always there for them, even if it was just to raid your snack drawer.

  4. Kids have a way of touching our hearts. I'm sure you touched theirs, as well.

  5. I know you touched their lives in a way that will add a spark which will grow and be passed on. Love you new header!!! You always have the best "vista" and the quote on the sidebar! Beautiful! Have a great day, Christine.

  6. You touched their lives too!
    I can't tell you how much the kids need wonderful, loving people in their lives like you. Thanks for "living in the trenches!" with these fantastic young adults!

  7. Christine-
    It sounds like you were very important to all of the students as well. You are someone they will always remember because you "invested" in them. Have a great weekend! :)

  8. What a sweet post. I wouldn't doubt it that you may have left an impact on them as much as they have on you.

  9. I always wanted to be a teacher but now I often think it was best that I didn't. I would take it too hard at the end of each year having to say good-bye. I don't do good-byes well. I would be a crying mess.

  10. Sounds like you are the right person in the right place:) Enjoy your summer; you'll have a fresh batch to get acquainted with soon!

  11. I can just tell from your thoughtful blog that you were a wonderful listener and support for those youn adults. The were lucky to have crossed paths with you . . .
