I walked into Pine Tree today to say goodbye to all my loved teachers and staff before heading off to CT! I made my way around to different classrooms, where hugs, prayers, and tears were exchanged. I understood how heartbreaking this was for students, but I realized today, what a toll it's had on our teachers. The teachers who don't just grade, but clarify. The teachers who don't just talk, but listen. The teachers who don't just teach, but love! Thank you, faculty, for doing everything for your students' success... even when miles separate us.
I've been cheated time at Pine Tree... (Mrs. Dayen pls let me stay back #joke....sorta) But even with that cut short, I've already gained more than I could ask for at PTA. Dear students, I miss you and love you! You are in my prayers. I'll meet you at the Tree of Life.... ha! Hopefully before that :)
Oh, and very Happy 30th Birthday, Mr. Krueger! :D
