Every year when the back-to-school chatter begins I think about teachers. Not just public school teachers but also all those moms who undertake to homeschool.

When I was teaching in public school the words back-to-school brought mixed feelings. I loved teaching. The excitement that came in August as I prepared for another school year was hard to beat.

It’s that time of year again.

I still feel the excitement and fight the urge to buy new school supplies. Does August bring on thoughts of school and school teachers for you?
