I’m Not Going to Be Back Next Year

I just blurted it out on Friday.  We only had 5 minutes left in class.   We have exams next week and I have a large number of exemptions.  I knew that I might not see some of my students for the rest of year.  It was pretty tough.  I feel pretty guilty.  

My first year at the school was great.  Last year was not.  This semester may have been my best since I have been here, but it doesn’t make up for fall semester.  I had kidney stones and pneumonia.  If I stayed it could be even better, but I need to be closer to home.  

This is going to be a rough transition.
