It’s that time of year. My seniors start leaving me. Sigh.

Students say goodbye in a variety of ways. Some simply disappear. Others write a quick email and that’s that. Some bring me a gift and write wonderful cards. The cards warm my heart very much. I can usually predict who will do what, but not always.

So far this year two have had their last lessons and I have one more who will be leaving soon, I’m sure. I’ve taught some of these students for eight years. I’ve grown to love them and I’ve watched them grow from little children whose feet can barely reach the floor to wonderful young adults. I connected well with some, others not so much. That’s just the way it is. But I’ve loved every one and I always hate saying goodbye.
