And just like that, summer is over. Anyone else feel as though it absolutely flew by?
Today is the first day back at school, and I’m feeling ok about it. Last year I remember having horrible anxiety. My husband was comforting me in bed as tears were streaming down my cheeks. I was so nervous about the new preps I was assigned to teach without feeling any sort of confidence. But just like always, I survived the year. Sure, there were a few bumps in the road, but we got through it.
As I’m still not feeling totally comfortable with the new classes, I feel better this year. I’m trying to focus on all the fun things that come with the beginning of the school year. Fall is my absolute favorite season. The leaves are beautiful, the food is incredible, the weather is ideal, lots of football, pumpkin flavored everything, and it’s my birthday.
Also, a new school year brings so many new students. While they test my patience daily, having an important role in their lives and being a good role model is what I try to keep in mind. Another reason to look forward to today: new office supplies! Call me crazy, but I go crazy for new pens, notebooks, and planners. Don’t even get me started on post-it notes.
Here’s to a great year!
