Instead of classes the school gathers in the front yard and holds and assembly just as they do for the very first day of school.
And the front entrence becomes a stage.
After the assembly is over everyone takes lots of pictures...
|Director of the school|
|Some of the graduating 12th graders|
|My partner teacher|
But most importantly everyone also gives out lots of gifts, mostly flowers but today I was surprised to find that I received quite a lot of love in the from of many thank you cards. One from each class I taught this year.
The director of the school also gave me a certificate of appreciation and some souvenirs for me to take home to America.
Did I mention that I also gave a speech? Completely in Romanian and in front of the whole school. Then a little while after I slow danced with a 12th grader...once again in front of the whole school. Let's hope that both of those were once in a lifetime events.
