Another Big Breakfast

Eng Dept Breakfast

Last English “Department Meeting” in my apartment with much the same breakfast menu. Pancakes. Eggs. Hash browns (this time turning out better than last time). Biscuits. Bacon. I never thought I would enjoy preparing and cooking for so many people, but it was such a pleasure. A big part of this labor of love is the appreciation I have for my fellow English teachers. I also think that a part of it was a need to have closure on a significant role I played for the past two years. As English department head, I started with very specific short-term and long-term goals. I am good with what I was able to do with the time and resources that were available to me. And while there are still many things left undone, I come away feeling satisfied with what I was able to accomplish. I now bequeath these projects, responsibilities, and the rest of my resources to my successors. More power to them as they take up the baton.

It has been an honor and pleasure to have worked with such professionals who have made my job so easy. No regrets on my end. Saying goodbye is always hard, but for this department, after all that we’ve been through, it feels right. It’s time. It’s been grand.
