The Clay Teacher has left the building.
Wow.. what a run. Today was our last workshop for this term. We were at Grandin. A beautiful old school built in 1915. Another school that we have been at a number of times over the last two years. Great school and great bunch of kids, but I do wish the school had an elevator. Everything goes up, and down, three flights of stairs. We finished off with Big Mouth Frogs. The kids had a hoot and made some wonderful frogs. There is nothing like mid June, Friday afternoon energy in a classroom. Add to that, our last workshop energy and it was fun..... rule number one....Always have fun.
We had a few things to do after work and were driving in the city. Stopped at a crosswalk for a mom and her son to cross the street. The boy looked at us, gave us a big smile, pointed, waved and showed us to his mom. We had him in a classroom sometime, somewhere and he recognized " Mr and Mrs Clay". It was cool. After 9,000 plus faces, we didn't recognize him, but waved anyway.
It feels good to be off duty....... we are never really off duty, but now we have no time frames, no schedule to stick to. ...... Summer time, and the livin' is easy........
Until the next time.
