First Weeks

For twelve years I’ve looked forward to the new school year with this mixed anticipation, dread. This year, I can’t wait. My kids are great. My room is pretty. I’m teaching my beginning class in a different room than the staff room so I won’t have the phone ringing like crazy or the million and four other distractions that take place in the life of the publications adviser.
It’s exciting!
New years are awesome. They’re clean slates of sorts. I can’t wait.
