Today being the first day back to school after a three day weekend, I stood at the top of the 'ramp' coming into the 8th grade hallway and greeted the students with a "Good Morning!! It's great to see you!" Within an hour I hit bottom.
Yesterday I heard that one of the teachers on our faculty lost her father this weekend. Upon coming in today I heard that another teacher on our faculty lost his fater as well. Then I heard a teacher in another building lost his father. I couldn't believe it!!!
Then I received news that the former Latin teacher, who retired in June and just moved into his new home with his wife in Florida to be near their daughter, son-in-law and soon to be born grandchild, passed away Sunday night.
