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.
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, we 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?
