Today is my last time

to teach these kids. 
 My first year teaching is done, copout, finished. It is a strange and bittersweet feeling. 

I moved down here to teach 1st grade. That's it. No family, friends, boyfriend. Nope, just the job. By myself.

And I have loved every minute of it. 

I'm leaving with experience, great memories and some amazing people I now call my friends.

I do not regret moving down here at all.

And I feel very lucky to have taught these students', with some amazing coworkers at this school.

Let summer begin.

And no I still don't have a job for next year in Chicago yet. Still crossing my fingers.


  1. Best of luck on your job search for next year. TN is beautiful ! My niece is a teacher in Tampa getting ready to job search in Seattle because she's getting married and moving away..I've always thought that it would be very rewarding to be a teacher :)

  2. Great luck in your teachings for next year. I have a friend who currently works for CPS and she says that there is always openings so stay positive!

  3. Good luck on the job search and the move!! My friend was just officially hired out here in the Chicago suburbs today, so there are still jobs out there :)
