Day 21: Wave Goodbye

The end of the school year always arrives with mixed feelings. I feel thankful for the upcoming school break and always look forward to the rest. However, as I wave goodye to my students on the last day of school I do feel a little sadness.

During the school year I get to know each child as well as I can. I help them through a learning discovery for a year and encourage them to develop their skills. I get to understand their personalities and figure out a way in which to motivate them. When April comes around, we are all used to one another and have found a way in which to work together.

As I wave goodbye and wish my students well for their summer vacation, I wish that I could continue with them on their educational journey. But it is not to be. I reconcile myself that we will meet in the hallways.

  1. I’m waving good bye to my child clients for just a month. I’m taking a month off to attend an intensive feeding clinic with our own son. I know I’ll learn lots and so will he, but I will miss my weekly kid clients at our speech clinic. So I cannot imagine the good byes of a school year for summers! I do love when the kids “graduate” though and move on. It is a good sign of growth!
