I Hate You Friday, December 11

This morning I was so excited that it was Friday. It has been a very long week. Things were going well today.

At the end of second period, I opened an email from the assistant principal of discipline. In the subject it said, "For your eyes only". We usually get these if someone has written a threatening message in a bathroom, or if they need us to identify a student in a picture. What I read was not something like that at all.

A former student of mine that I had as a sophomore, was in a car accident this morning on his way to school. He didn't make it. He was a senior. He was a nice kid. One of the nicest kids I've ever met.

I just realized that I keep typing was. This is so hard. I hate you, Friday, December 11. This is the 4th student of mine that has passed away. I hate you, Friday, December 11.

Here's a link that will tell you about his accident. He was a good kid. Please pray for his family, friends, and the students and teachers at my school.


  1. So sorry.....our school disctrict went through three student deaths due to driving last year/winter. So sad and so hard for families, teachers and friends.

  2. My heart goes out to all he has left behind. Love, MOM

  3. I'm so sorry to hear about your former student. I'd like to wrap my arms around you right now.

  4. I'm so sorry, Jenna. It takes on a whole new horrificness now that we're parents too.
