I went to the grade eight students’ graduation today. It was nice to see them walk across the stage, but something felt different about this one, it didn’t have the same gravitas that the ceremony has had in the past.

I’ve been working with the same group for three years so it felt right to attend their graduation ceremony. When they saw me sitting in the seats, they all turned to wave and tapped each other on the shoulder to share where I was sitting. That was a good feeling.

There’s a general feeling of being done with this school year. If nobody else is feeling it, I certainly am. That I’ll be at a different school next year further entrenches that sentiment.

I suppose, in a way, tonight’s ceremony was also for me. After six years, I’m heading somewhere new, too.
