I walked into my school today to go get some books out of office. It was very sad walking into a dark and quiet building. I passed the dark classrooms, full of no children, just their work on the wall. I felt their presence around me. Maybe it was wishful thinking. No lockers slamming, no voices heard, no complaining, no teachers teaching, no running around, no books being read……it was all missing. It felt odd. I had never thought that I would be saying this, but I miss going to work! I miss the hellos every morning, I miss my co workers, I miss all the kids, I miss my office, I miss the love of my work. I miss it dearly. I hope this is over and we can make life work again.
