back to school
I helped a teacher set up her classroom for the new school year today. There was an air of excitement in the school as other teachers stopped by to check in on one another. Everyone was happy. It made me think back to the days when I was in elementary school and we arrived at the school for the first day of the new school year. We went to the classroom that we had the year before and our previous teacher greeted us. She called out each of our names and we formed two rows. Each row was assigned to a new teacher. At the appointed time we walked quietly in single file to our new room assignments. What a fun way to start a new year by saying goodbye to one teacher and saying hello to another on the same day. It was very exciting.
Just imagine this hallway in three weeks.....FILLED with kids!!! Happy times.
