Well, I had my first back-to-school meeting today and classes begin next Wednesday. I am always excited about getting back into the classroom. One of the best aspects of being a teacher is the ability to start over each year. You are given a blank slate on which you can literally re-invent yourself. To my fellow teachers out there I wish all of you the best in starting the new year. Take a chance and try some new ideas out and remember to have fun. This is an awesome profession!
