As I walked around our school last week, I saw sure signs of a new school year: shiny floors, new supplies, teachers hard at work preparing their classrooms.
I think back to my days as a student and how excited (and nervous) I was to begin the new year: to meet my teacher and settle into a new classroom. All of the students I have seen so far echoed these same sentiments.
There will be both jitters and joy in the days ahead. May the moments of joy outnumber the jitters!
