Last night I got to experience one of the biggest highlights as my first year as a teacher, graduation! You might ask if our graduation is online because the school is online. We do hold a physical graduation for those students who can travel to the location to attend. And boy is it a big one! My job for graduation this year was to help pass out honor cords for those students graduation with a GPA of 3.5 or higher. 
Look at all those cords!
 I also helped pass out the valedictorian medals and National Honor Society stoles. I had the pleasure of watching all the graduates walk by and directing them to the table if they had earned honors as well as putting on the cords for them. This gave me the opportunity to meet many of my students from this year and see their smiling faces in person as they experienced this important day. I also informed many of the students of their achievements of graduating with honors. I spoke with a student who was in tears about how far she had come after finding out she had earned honors. After getting the graduates ready I watched from the floor as over 1,000 students earned their high school diplomas. It was amazing to be a part of such an achievement. What an experience!
