Back to School...Here's to Us!

Ahh...August!  Hot days.  Cool nights.  The smells of paper, pencils, crayons, markers.  The sounds of crickets, end-of-summer cannonballs, football drills,  laughter, and for some...crying!  It is back to school time and all that comes with it!  Shopping, making lists, sleepless nights, anxiety, excitement, more shopping, interviews, classroom overhauls, lesson plans, staff meetings, and did I mention shopping?
I am a 30 year veteran of back to school and I never tire of the excitement it brings.  This blog will be dedicated to making a teacher's life a bit easier.  I hope to record my thoughts, successes, failures, and "do-overs".  We are not in this alone.  We are a consortium of professionals, mothers, fathers, wives, husbands, trainers, students, entertainers, Jack of ALL trades...and possibly Masters of SOME.  Here's to all of us!  May we start strong, support one another, and finish enthusiastically exhausted.  Here's to nine months of finding the best in our times a difficult task...but always...ALWAYS...rewarding.  When they realize we won't EVER give up on them...they won't give up on us.
