I loved the traditions built over time that teachers do to say goodbye to students at the end of the year. They are filled with laughter, food, awards, sharing and celebrations for the beautiful learning and work accomplished. That final day, story sharing was a large part of our morning, the memories that had knit our year together. And every year I found a poem of goodbye to give to students. I have shared some of this before, and I am again caught up in the excitement of endings at school, so I thought you would enjoy one of my favorites given to students of the past.
