change is never easy...
It became official Thursday night. The elementary school where I work is being turned into a magnet school. I staff I work with are all being sent to schools throughout the district.
My heart hurts.
Yes, this is a good decision for the school district. Yes, it will be a good thing for so many people. Yes, of course, I am grateful to still have a job. Of course. But.
But, I am heartbroken.
This place I work; this place I love; this beautiful season in my life... all of it is ending. And I am sad. Just sad.
People who don't work here think our sadness is just the stress of change. It isn't. Those of us who work here, know that we are a part of something special. That it just doesn't happen like this very often. We've made a family out of a disparate group of people. We've made a home out of a fifty year old building. We've made a life of service, together. We've found a family.
And my heart is broken to lose it.
In case you want more...
