School is out for the summer!! (except I go back to work on thurs. for summer school...not as much fun.) I had a super fun time with my roomie and lots of other friends today. Leaving my students was emotional this year. I had a great class. A lot of the 5th graders who graduated were crying. It was sweet to know that we have that impact on them. For a lot of them, we are the only constant thing in their lives. Excited to be done, but sad to let them go. :( Luckily, I'll have some of my same students next year, since I'm teaching a 4/5 combo class.
After school was out, we headed to Visili's(greek food) for lunch. I did this last year to celebrate...it looks like a tradition is starting. :) 5 of my friends met us there and we had a great time. Then, we hung around at home for a few hours before we met my mentor teacher for drinks. It was my last meeting with her. She has been amazing, and I would never be the teacher I am today, without her.
After, we went to the movie theater to see Kung foo panda. It is absolutely hilarious. I think it's pretty appropriate for kids, although the bad guy can be scary for really little ones. There was a bunch of kids in the theater that were laughing the whole time. I enjoyed it, and thought that it was super creative. Try to get out and see it! Happy Summer!
