Hello, My Love,
Today is my last day at this job and although I'm excited to start the new job and to be teaching again I will really miss some of these kids. For the last month and a half I've been filling in as the Pre-K teacher and I've grown pretty close to the kids in that class. They all know I'm leaving and keep asking me when my last day is and why am I going to a new school. How do you explain to 4 and 5 year olds about stress? I just tell them that I'm going to a school that is closer to my house and that I will miss them. Since my doctors are all in this area I will be able to stop by and visit when I have appointments. I also have a few friends that work here that I will miss seeing every day as well. My friend, Diana and I open in the morning at 6:30 and it's usually pretty quiet around here until about 7 so we'll sit and chat about stuff. I'll definitely miss that.
I'm anxious to start this new job. I hate first days. I always feel like the odd man out since I don't know anyone and don't know where anything is, etc. I just keep telling myself that I'm doing the right thing. Thank goodness your dad supports me. I wasn't sure if he would since this job pays less but he has been wonderful throughout this transition. I love him for that.
