I just needed to leave the building and move on to the next chapter in my life. Instead of boring you to tears with my thoughts about today,
The infamous one-button bandit. I think that I gambled more money away in that machine without getting my coffee, then I have on lottery tickets. Once in a while though it would actually work and then I had to drink the stuff. Not the best coffee in the world, but it did give me an excuse to get out of the room, check my school mail box and get back a little bit of sanity on some really tough days. So in the end it was worth all the money gambled away on the coffee machine.
My last view of Lawrence Junior High School before I got in my Subaru and drove away.
This is the welcome sign Mrs. Brawn made at the start of the year for us to put on our door. She also made one for each student in our homeroom (I noticed more than a couple of the 8th graders taking theirs with them when they left). One of my students dared me to put it on my face and let him take a picture of me acting silly one last time.
Thank you Mrs. Brawn – you have, are and will continue to make a positive difference in your (our) student’s lives. I will miss your smile, our talks and your enthusiasm. I wish you well. Just don’t climb on top of the bookcases anymore – okay 😉
Fare Thee Well – LJHS
