I didn't count on how much I would be affected by the knowledge that I will not be teaching my students anymore. I'm conflicted, one part of me is sad that I won't be seeing my students and I won't be working with them, and on the classes that I put together. On the other hand I'm happy because of the opportunities that we as a family are looking at, learning a new language and culture. Finding out how other people live and seeing the differences and similarities.
Here's to being foot loose and fancy free...for a few days at least.
