Last Day

Today is our last full day of school.  Although I am done teaching subjects, I still have things to teach my students.  For instance, the power of ending on a positive note, the importance of reflecting on the school year, and the value of making memories.  This year as a parting gift I am giving each student a DVD with two videos.  One is a 20 minute montage of photos from the year.  The other is a short compilation of each of them saying what they believe in. (An homage to our This I Believe essays.) I hope that I have given them more this year. I hope that I have given them a sense of strength, empowerment, and kindness. I hope they had the time of their life.
