The end of this school year has me just as anxious as my students. Yet another one of my Things walks through graduation this year. The Norwegian Afro and the Italian Songstress, who've spent all year becoming part of our family, will turn around and head home. I have to make it through several more concerts, awards nights and meetings, then school's out for summer. This year I am more antsy about the whole process. I finally got full-time hours by taking on a new content area, and the resultant learning curve has me weary. We're working hard to find homes for exchange students, and it feels like that's harder this year, too. But mostly I am giddy like a kid in a candy store, because come July, I finally get to turn the tables and go abroad for the first time in 20+ years. I can't wait.
