some of my students are graduating in the next 3 weeks.
i always become emotional this time of year, but this year i feel the emotion especially because these are young women i have worked with over the last 4 years. these are, in fact, my first class of seniors that i have seen grown from freshmen to graduating seniors and beyond.
and i am getting really emotional about it.
i came in to my office last thursday and one of my students left her senior picture. she's radiating with a flower in her hair. all of the promise that we all have in that moment in front of the camera that summer before senior year madness begins.
i saw that expression and i melted.
she's graduating on friday. and she's amazing. and i love that another successful future leader has come through our walls.
