Yesterday was a tough one!!!!!
Curt shared with each of his classes that he was taking a medical leave and would not be returning to teaching after the Thanksgiving break. He told the students the last 5 min. of each class and I was fortunate enough to be able to run down to his classroom and be with him when he told the students.
It was so endearing! Many of the students cried as he told them. At the end of class many of the girls would so sweetly ask him if it’s ok for them to hug him. The guys did the cool man hug thing with him. He received several quickly scribbled together cards, laced with such poignant and endearing words. Even 2 of his all time worst students gave him the kindest cards, filled kind and gracious words for their teacher. By the end of the day many students were lined up at his classroom door to say good-bye, even students from previous years started showing up. One sweet girl came down and said she wanted to help him and offered to wash his chalkboards.
And of course there was LOTS of junk food gifts from his fellow faculty members…..that should reveal something about my sweet husband’s eating habits to you! 🙂
Me and my sweet hubby on his last day with the students!
