a powerful emotional day . . . letting my kids go ... (part two) . . .today was ann-marie sullivan and my grade six classes' grad. it was a beautiful event - so very fitting, as we let go of such beautiful kids. for each of ann-marie and i, this was also a reluctant and sad letting go of our roles as the grade six teachers . . . i am super-excited that i am going to be a grade 2/3 teacher for the next two years before i retire . . . i've already named my class "the wild things" . . .and ann-marie is going to teach a grade 4/5. we received so many compliments from parents, kids past and present, and colleagues who have admired the work we have done over the past few years.
