I had to say goodbye to 5 of my students.  They are transitioning back to their school district.  It's what we, as teachers, want when they start coming to this school, but sometimes it just sucks to see them go.  One of my favs is going back to his district.  We kept telling him that we would miss him and hugged him goodbye.  I don't think it hit him, what was going on, until he got on the bus, and then he started to cry.  Breaks my heart.  Sometimes, I hate my job, but for the most part, it's a pretty good gig.  It makes me feel like all the hard work is worth it when a parent, who will be moving to Boston, says, "I wish we could take you with us!"  Yep, that's all the validation I need to keep plugging along.
