At this moment I am sitting at the KET table at the Summer Refresher at Dixie Heights High School–my last official KET event. I now know the true meaning of the word “bittersweet”, and the word has powerful connotations. I have been blessed: I have truly loved all of my careers–English teacher, media specialist, KET education consultant–and leave this one, too, with a boatload of mixed feelings. However, I couldn’t have ended it in a better way. Yesterday, I attended my final KSMA board meeting attended by friends I first met in 1995 at my very first fall conference. (We recalled my getting stuck in the Lexington Hyatt elevator in the middle of the night that first night.) Then last evening, my bff’s from western KY and I ate (with a few saluts along the way) our way across the Newport Levee and ended the late night taking pictures with the ‘gang’ as the Cincy skyline sparkled in the background.
Today is a good way to say a bien tot!
I have told recent workshop attendees that I would still be ‘out there’ connected to all–Facebook, Twitter, and email–so keep in touch.
