Back To School Time
I know that many of us are still recovering from RWA's national conference but I have already moved on to the next adventure. I am frantically getting my classroom ready for Parent Orientation at 10:00 on Thursday.
Of course, I can't just work in my classroom. I get to attend meetings and workshops for much of the day and then work in my classroom, which is the most fun. There is a lot of excitement in the air as my entire school prepares to receive students and parents for the new school year.
We are creating bulletin boards and arranging desks. Everyone is keyed up and working like Santa's elves on December 23rd. I even made a sail boat this afternoon!
All of this hustle and bustle has brought to mind my own back to school memories. I can remember going to get new clothes and school supplies. I still love the feel and smell of a brand new notebook. To this day, I think of back to school time rather than the New Year as the best time to make resolutions and changes in my life. I
think this is connected to my love of a new notebook. It is a blank slate to record new adventures on.
What is your best back to school memory?
