From the card my kids gave me on the my last day:
You are awesome, Mr. G!
Thank you 4 being here.
Sad to see you go but hope to see you again! PS You will be missed.
I will miss you pleas [sic] come and visit us.
We’ll miss you! Come back soon!
Thanks for all your help.
Bon voyage, and have a wonderful time.
We will miss you and take care.
Makes it all so worth it. Glad I’m staying in DC, so I’ll get to stop by after school to see them when they’re (gasp!) seventh graders.
TFA–ready or not, here I come.
