It's Graduation Season again here in New Jersey. This was my first year teaching middle school (I spent the first 14 years in elementary) so it was the first time I attended a graduation of students that I taught that same year. There were some very proud moments as I watched my "kids" graduate and move up to our high school.

I teach at the small Christian school that I graduated from "a few" years ago so it was very nostalgic to sit in that very same gym and watch my students graduate. It was a different perspective to watch the ceremony from the audience as a teacher rather than on the stage as a student.
|I was a senior and my brother was an 8th grader back in 1993. Our graduations were held on the same night in the same gym.|
