Summer has, for me, officially ended. I am a teacher and today is my first day back to school. The students don't start until next Monday, but there is still A LOT to prepare. Most of this week will be dedicated to meetings - when we are all so eager to get to our rooms!
I am blessed to work with gifted students in grades 9-12 and have the same students every year. It is wonderful to be able to develop long-term relationships with my students. I look forward to hearing about their summer, their plans for this school year, and their preparations for college. I also have a whole new crop of freshmen to meet!
I do hate to see the summer end, but I also love the beginning of a new school year. It is a fresh start and holds so much promise. I am blessed.
