It’s That Time of the Year

Back to school

It is that time of the year … back to school time.  Kids say they aren’t ready to go back, but secretly, though, many of them are.   Teachers are the same way.  They enjoy their summers off doing nothing! (Doing nothing … yea right!!!)  Teachers get finished with one school year and then start planning for the next.  They go to workshops to learn new things that will help them with their classes.  They come up to the school (and try to maneuver around the desks and tables that the custodians have moved into the halls and not walk on the freshly waxed floors) in order to work in their rooms.   Some teachers come up at night to work on their rooms because they have a summer job because teacher’s pay is too low.  Teachers spend all summer doing nothing, so when the end of August rolls back around, they are ready for the new school year.

It’s that time of the year … back to school time.  It’s that time of the year when new teachers meet the teachers who have already been working in the district.  It’s that time of the year when the veteran teachers  are able to help mentor the new teachers and help them get settled in.   It’s that time of the year when a new principal is welcomed by fresh faces (teachers, students, parents, community members).  OK, I had to include this last sentence because I’ve been in my new school for 12 days now and I have met a lot of good people who are also excited about this new school year.

It’s that time of the year … back to school time.  Schedules are done, but some students aren’t happy because they didn’t get all the classes they wanted.  It’s that time of the year when the first day of school is right around the corner and senior students realize that this will be their last … first day of school (I stole this statement from a teacher at my previous school who always does a great job with the back-to-school announcements and assembly).  It’s that time of the year when the football team is practicing in the 90-100 degree heat as they get ready to make a run for the state championship.  It’s that time of the year when the volleyball team is working hard in preparation for their run at a state championship.  It’s that time of the year when we’re already having volleyball games but school hasn’t even actually started yet.

It’s that time of the year … back to school time… and I’m looking forward to it!!!!!
