First Day of School

After 17 years of teaching, the first day of school is still one that is filled with excitement for me. Late August and September are probably one of the busiest times for teachers, but I know many of us also look to this day as if it were a childhood holiday.

This year was no exception. As I greeted each student this morning, I could sense their excitement, eagerness, and anxiety. After a long summer, they seemed ready for another year of learning. I too was eager and anxious, but it only took minutes to begin building relationships which will hopefully last beyond the school year and enable these kids to grow. I can’t wait for day 2!

Day 2 includes preparing to help facilitate a faculty meeting, so this post will be short. I just couldn’t let day 1 go by without jotting something down.
