Today was a bittersweet experience as I had lunch with my CAPS colleagues...something that happens on a regular basis, but today they made me feel very special with a nice send off with gifts and cards reflective of my retirement.
How can I ever thank each and every one of them for the hours of support, collaboration, reflection, and dreaming that we have shared over the last several years. As I looked around at the faces of my CAPS friends, memories surfaced in my mind that I realized would become the true mementos I would take from this place.
This has not hit me yet...it seems still like I'm wrapping up for the summer. I don't think that the impact will really be upon me until the Fall, when I see the scurry and excitement of the new school year and will not be a part of it as I have been in the past.
THANK YOU to all of my CAPS friends. I could not have asked for a better place nor a better group of people with which to end my K-12 career.
Hugs. This isn't goodbye...just see you later...
