No More Classes

Monday was the last day of classes before final regents exams commenced. Above all, I’m thankful that I was given a great group of students this year. Because of a few external circumstances, my three classes ballooned to full capacity and the first few months were a bit difficult, but as usual, I fell into a groove around November or December and things started to get easier. I had fun with my classes and I think my students enjoyed my sarcasm for the most part.

Right now my students are on their own and although I’m not sure if most of them will pass the geometry regents, most of them are hard-working and hopefully at the very least they learned something worthwhile from me.

Personally, this is my favorite time of the year because it’s the beginning of my summer vacation. I work in the program office, so I’m not required to proctor and grade regents exams, but instead I’m sitting in an air-conditioned office working hard, ha! But just like the beginning of a movie, when one’s excitement is most high in anticipation of being thrust into a new world while momentarily leaving behind the one we currently live in, the beginning of my summer vacation is most exciting as I release 10-months worth of stress and dream big for whatever awaits in the coming months.
