Back-to-School – One Word Wednesday
Another summer is about over. Labor Day is less than two weeks away. Fall will officially arrive on September 22nd.
It’s the time of year when this one-time schoolteacher becomes nostalgic.
I’m not saying I’d want to be back in a classroom again. Not with the challenge of teaching today.
Still, once the back-to-school chatter begins, a part of me misses the excitement of starting a new school year, setting up my classroom, and seeing the eager young faces. The freshness of a new beginning.
Last Monday, when the dogs and I were out on our daily sunrise walk and spotted a school bus, I swallowed the lump in my throat brought on by my memories.
May all the students, teachers, and staff who began a new school year this week or will be going back-to-school over the next few weeks have a safe and productive new school year.
YOUR TURN: Do you miss school days?
