Today I visited the elementary school that I taught at for the last two years. I was greeted by smiling faces, many hugs and lots of questions about what I'll be doing for the next 27 months. I sure am going to miss that place, but the Peace Corps provides the resources to stay connected to a classroom (of your choosing if you wish) and send/receive packages from abroad so I won't feel too disconnected. I'm excited that my former students will get the chance to share this adventure with me. It's crazy to think that they will be half way done with 7th grade when I return (I taught fourth grade here in the states).
