It’s the second day of my last week in the high school. Weird. Leaving them will be extremely bittersweet. Sweet because I’ll actually have time to finish up my coursework that I may or may not have been procrastinating. Bitter because I will miss seeing the students and teachers on a daily basis. More bitter than sweet, I think.
The best of today was that we “workshopped” a writing piece in my 9th grade class. I wasn’t sure if they would take it seriously or if they would just kind of goof off or be too shy to ask for suggestions, but I was so pleasantly surprised. I was walking around just trying to listen and see if they were on task, and I was caught off guard by how into the activity they were. It was a breath of fresh air to have something go so well. I’m excited to hear their stories tomorrow 🙂
