teacher's log #1

Well, here I am at my new school.

It is the second day of teacher in-service and I am missing my old school already.

I think that I am really missing the people. I am thinking first of all the teachers that I have worked with for the last 4 years. I don't think that there is a better collection of teachers anywhere on this earth.

I am also missing the students. It saddens me greatly to think that I will not be seeing all of them in another week.

But I think that what I am experiencing right now is the loss of familiarity. A loss of all of those things that make you feel at home.
