What I will miss next fall

the garden view  outside my windows

first graders  with their little fingers

discovering the soil textures

and critters

the library, brimming with color, and bright new  books

the long hallway from 1918, original wood floors

beneath my  comfy,  frumpy ,  teacher clogs

the friendship between myself and my teaching partner

when you move schools, you lose touch,  really.

My daughter, below my classroom

thriving in kindergarten

Stealing hugs and kisses at  recesses,  fire drills,  assemblies.
