In nine years at The School, this has been, without a doubt, the best homeroom I've ever had. They'll be a tough act to follow. So, while part of me is glad it's
It's rare you get a bunch of kids who are, for the most part, nice, eager to please, and able to get along with each other. I could leave the room to run an errand to the front office or guidance, and they'd behave perfectly, the entire time I was gone. They were just that good. (I always had someone keep on eye on them, just in case, but never was there an issue.) I had other homerooms where it was risky to do hall duty.
I am really, really going to miss those kids.
