I had to say goodbye to my first student today at her birthday party. It was hard enough on Friday putting all of her classroom items into a bag to send home with Mom. Even though I know the reason why she's leaving the school has nothing to do with me, I'm sad that she's not in my class any more.
I'll still see her and her family when they bring her baby sister to our nursery. And I know at her new school she'll get all the services she needs to grow successfully, but it doesn't make the separation any easier.
She had a wonderful third birthday party and I was so happy to get to enjoy it with her and a few of my other Clownfish friends.
