The last student day of the school year is a momentous occasion both as a student, a teacher, and a parent. Therefore, I could not let this day slip by without mentioning some noteworthy firsts for today.
1: Today is the first time I am the parent of an 8th grader. As of noon today, E was officially promoted to the 8th grader. Ugh.
2: In order to make way for firsts, sometimes we have to have lasts. So today, I celebrate the last day of my 14th year as an educator. Bring on year 15 and the halfway point!
Later today I have another first planned, so I will update this evening with Part 2 of Day 143.
