What is the best way to say Goodbye?

With chicken feet, water fights, and waterproof mascara.

The 8th grade class organized a lock-in, inviting a few teachers as chaperones and about thirteen thousand mosquitoes.

Activities included the normal: chicken feet eating contests, Zombie dancing with the Chinese old folks and watching the sunrise on the school roof.

While it was fun, it was awfully tough. Amd I’m not just talking about the lack of sleep.

While the kids were playing games, I’d sneak in the bathroom, latched the door and sobbed. Half the tears were for me, half were for them, since many of the students come from stoic cultures where crying is not acceptable. So I had to cry their tears, too.

Yep, Learning to say goodbye is the toughest lesson I have ever taught.
