It is that time again…
Time to pick out our outfits for the first day.
Time to pack a lunch and go to bed earlier.
Time to prepare the backpacks and school supplies.
For a teacher, the first day of school is met with excitement and anticipation for the year ahead. What will we learn this year? Who will be in my class? Will we all get along? How can I best meet their needs while remembering my own humanness?
The classrooms are ready, so here we go…
Then they come to the door on the first day, full of energy, emotions, enthusiasm or maybe hesitation… but they come and for a few short hours we try to meet their needs, show them love, and maybe even learn something new together. What an amazing way to spend each day!
