I'm trying to muster up all my courage and all my stamina, because I'm about to run a marathon!
After a fabulous summer with lots of rest, relaxation, and good times, I'm going back to school.
I'm looking forward to seeing my colleagues again, and I'm really excited about my schedule this year!
Plus, I get to meet my kids tomorrow night at the Open House!
And I get to have them in my class starting Wednesday!
This year will be tough (they all have been, in some ways!) but I'm trying to be positive and look forward to the year.
After all, I can't be on summer vacation forever!
(But I sure will miss staying in jammies until noon!)
I've been giving myself a lot of "coaching"... kind, encouraging words. I thought perhaps you could use some, too.
This is from my Dad, the football coach. I say this to myself often!
Every time I get stressed about how much we have to teach and how little time we have to teach it: (the visual works for me, too!)
As above, I do get stressed! (I suspect we all do!)
Being a fan of the arts, I love this quote from John Steinbeck!
This is my own quote. You could sort of say it's my mission!
Just a little reminder how important it is to build bonds with the children!
This is also my own quote. It's something I remind myself frequently!
