'Twas the night before school starts
And the teacher can't sleep
Hoping there are no first day disasters
And children who weep!
My dad used to tell us about how my grandmother gave them "sleeping pills,", aka Good and Plenty candies, on Christmas Eve. I may need to go buy a box so I can sleep tonight. I've made a list and checked it
So why am I so nervous? Because I know that these next few days will have a tremendous impact on the rest of the year. Because I have been given this awesome responsibility to influence 22 little people and teach them as much as I can. Because after 30 years, I know what lies ahead, and after 30 years, I know that there will still be a lot of surprises coming my way!
Now it's time to check my list once more, set my alarm for 4:30 and eat a box of Good & Plenty candy!
Have a wonderful school year everyone!
