Tomorrow is the first day of classes- the classroom is clean, neat and tidy, quietly waiting for the sounds of children. I love setting up my classroom. As I set the activities up, and find new places for old things, it helps my mind to quiet, and to prepare me for another year of teaching. The beginning of the school year is possibly my favorite time of year- to me, it seems much more the beginning of the year than January 1st. As a child, of course I always loved the summer, but I LOVED back to school. Getting all the new schoool supplies, new clothes, seeing everyone again. I still feel the same way now! I can’t wait to see all my students tomorrow, and to get started with them. I hope they are all as excited as I am!
