Senior's last day was today! A very bittersweet day. My last AP class at Strongsville High School. I ended the year as I began it with Billy Collins' Aristotle and then showed this Senior Slideshow. The principal had excused seniors from their first period classes today, but all of my students except two - you know who you are - were there. Tissues were distributed. Memories and a few tears. Then they wrote their letters to next year's AP students. I love you kids. You inspire me to be the best teacher I can be and I mean it when I say - you all get a 5 in Life!

project done by a Deerfield Academy student. We had a lovely time walking around as the sun was setting, finding favorite lines from poems, seeing Emily's garden in full bloom and bidding a sort of farewell to Amherst.
I think I could win a prize with this photo!
