I felt like Alice in Wonderland when she ate the cake that made her grow. It had been 9 years since I had been in that school and I expected it to be much larger. It was so strange because I would expect this to happen if I were a child but, as an adult I was dumbfounded. How could I be bigger than I was? I can only guess that, at 24 years-old, I felt small when I first started teaching. Now, I am 45, and tomorrow I will walk out of the school again, perhaps for the last time. I feel like I am leaving home.
