Happy First Day of School! The kids arrive this morning, and just like them……I'm nervous and excited for the first day. You never know what a new school year will bring…..and I love that feeling. I've spent the last few days sharpening pencils, arranging crayon boxes, and visiting with former students who stopped by my classroom. And now…..it's time.
Parents of school aged kids, please know that teachers anticipate the first day just as much as your family does. We plan, we agonize, we pray and we can't WAIT to meet our new students. They are why we do what we do.
So if you see a teacher today, wish them a happy first day of school……and know that in about 10 hours…..they'll be exhausted, the first day is always a doozy!
