It is done!!!!

Today is officially teacher's last day of school. I can't believe it's already over. I'm so looking forward to some much needed rest. I plan to get my house really clean. And most of all, I plan to spend quality time with the boys! I was thinking today about this past school and wanted to blog about it so I would always remember my first year of teaching.

My room is packed,
Everything is put away,
I still can't believe today is the last day.

The kids have all gone,
The halls are bare,
Summer vacation, I'm almost there.

A's, B's, C's, D's;
I even handed out some F's,
No, I'm not pleased.

But I was honored to watch them grow.
There were so many things they had to know.

Short stories, pronouns, oxymoron, pun,
"Romeo and Juliet", "And Then There Were None."
Hyperbole, verb tense, essay's, and more,
I hope that my first year wasn't a bore.

And now that I have turned in my key,
My gradebook, records, and dictionary,
I sit here with my classroom all packed,
Vacation will be great but I can't wait to get back!
