6 more days with kids (the last two days, I have no students, which should make it easier to organize, clean, and complete all of the end of the year stuff). Right now, I'm exhausted.
The up side is the faculty meeting was canceled, so I'm able to leave in about 10 minutes - which, I plan to. I usually stay late, but not tonight.
Wednesday, 5/17/17 - I did stay later, to finish some activities, but, still left earlier than usual.
I have almost all of my students in 1st Block either taking the Final, or exempting. Only 1 non-senior, who will be taking the Final next week. So, I'll plan on off-loading him in another class on Thursday, to take advantage of that time to get some organizing and inventory done.
Later - 1:20 - I'm waiting for my students to arrive. Really, the Physics students have generally been delightful this year, although a little passive and low-key. They seldom get over-the-top excited about anything.
To be honest, almost all of my students are sweeties. Good, hardworking (OK, a few have taken laziness to a new low), and generally wonderful. I will miss the students when I leave.
I'm clearing the decks this week of paperwork/grading. Next week will be over quickly, and I don't want to leave any paperwork not dealt with.
Summer vacation will have a new poignancy this year - it will be an endless va-cay.
