Back To School
Well, it’s about that time again. Time to go back to school. I have had a very busy summer. I have been taking three graduate classes, vacationing with my family, and trying to catch up on projects at home. This summer has flown by! I am always a little aprehensive about the first day of school. Will I be ready? What will my new students be like? What will their parents be like? I am sure that my students have some of the same apprehensions.
I love the image that I chose for my post. Most days I feel like hiding under my covers. With all of the budget cuts, it seems that the work and responsibilites are never ending. Teachers have to wear many hats these days. I miss the days when teachers had one hour lunches and paraprofessionals. Everytime that I walk into our teacher’s lounge I am reminded of the days when teachers would sit in the lounge and take smoke breaks. I laugh to myself whenever I think about it. I also remember when the only phone in the building was in the office and there were no computers. Times have surely changed. The one thing that hasn’t changed is the feeling that I get on the first day of school. It is a mixture of dread, and excitement. It is so bittersweet. I am looking forward to meeting my new little angels. Hopefully, this will be a great year!
