Say the Goodbyes You Want to Say!

As the school year comes to a close, we are all often overwhelmed with everything that must be done.  We worry about the EOCs, the final exams, the last minute assignments, and all the required data analysis.  Sometimes we are so preoccupied with the "must-do" list that we forget what is most important: Saying Goodbye!

Take the time, whether in written or verbal format, to say goodbye to your students.  Let them know how they've grown, how they'd changed, how they've become the students you dreamt they would become.  But don't let them get away that easily.  Offer them advice on everything to come.  Continue to guide them in the right direction, making sure they will remember your words, and most importantly, your actions for years, or even a lifetime, to come!

Happy Teaching!
