Bittersweet.

Saying goodbye to a good job is bittersweet. Several students wrote me heartfelt notes of goodbye; their words were powerful. Leaving colleagues that I have really befriended and come to trust and enjoy is also hard; I know that Universities are very good at keeping people isolated by areas of expertise...

But, amid all of this I am very excited about leaving behind some areas. I am delighted to leave behind some of the the whiny and entitled parents that private schools can gather; I am thrilled to be moving my desk to an office that someone else's anxieties don't dominate.
