Last week I shared a snippet about a childhood memory of shamrock name tags and how I have recreated this bit o’ fun for my students and teachers over the years. Tomorrow, I won’t be passing out those shamrock name tags. After personal reflection and important conversations with colleagues, I’m shifting gears to find another way to bring joy to our school community tomorrow. I don’t think I’m quite in a place to write at length about that decision and all that went into it. I’m selfishly mourning my beloved tradition and hope it will live in my heart as a cherished memory (and hopefully in the hearts of others, too)!
