Yesterday was my last official day at Durango. After 3 years of teaching it was really sad to say goodbye. Most of the day I was so busy hurrying to get the last of my grading finished and all of my paperwork cleared up that I wasn't focused on my feelings. When the end of the day rolled around and I was saying goodbye to the last few students who kept wandering in and as I hugged some of my colleagues that is when the emotions hit me. My department chair told me that in his opinion I was "irreplaceable and will be sorely missed,"--that got me crying. I can honestly say that I am not the same individual I was before I entered the doors of Durango and as much as I have loved/hated my job at times it was an honor working there.
