Saying Goodbye

Over the past few weeks I’ve often thought about this post and what I would write in it. I knew I would write the post of course. How could I not? It’s a huge change.

God has a way of changing things even the most permanent-seeming things.

Yesterday I said goodbye to 1st period.

and 2nd period

and third period

"I am not a creppy Mexican man."


who wrote the sweetest notes

Then came 4th period


and 5th period

and finally 6th, my last class period ever.

As I look back on yesterday I’m thankful for my time with my students both good and bad. I choose to remember the lessons God taught me rather than dwell on things that would bring me down.

This afternoon when I leave I close the door to this chapter of my life and look forward to the next step.
