As I was looking at posts on Facebook tonight, I couldn't help but notice that some people commented on how they are going to miss Brandon after they leave. Although the feeling quite hasn't hit me but yet for some it is a reality that has struck them. I recall the first week of school in the fall of 2008, wait a minute, I just had to confirm with my spouse if I started in 2008. It's true, two quick years have passed by just like that. It just seems like yesterday that I met some new friends and got reacquainted with others. I can remember Tom Skinner saying to us in his Professional Teacher class that "in the spring of 2010 when you guys are out teaching, there are some things you should know"... although some of what he shared with us scared me I have learned that there are "do's" and "don't's" in the teaching profession. Some of the stories he shared with us were pretty extreme, but helpful. One story I remember was about liability and to always keep a watchful eye on our classrooms, because anything can happen.
The more I reflect and remember, the more I start to become melancholy or blue, whatever you want to call it. I'm sure many of us will cross paths, either through technology or within the same school divisions. So, did I have a teary-eyed farewell? No. Will I? Maybe. But I highly doubt it. Just look forward and keep the good memories alive. See you all later and good luck.
