Back-to-school and trying to get back into some sort of groove and routine is our latest adventure.
The first day I was worried about how Devin would do. This was the first year where Zachary wouldn’t be in the same building as him. What was I worried about? Devin was a trooper and I don’t even think he flinched as he walked on in to his home away from home. In fact, he was only worried about whether or not Mrs. G would think his shirt was funny. He’s decided he should be the class clown especially once others got to see his shirt the second day too. (After reading Diary of a Wimpy Kid books and seeing the movies Devin is thinking about how he’ll be remembered).
Zachary took everything in stride and was happy to be in Mr. H’s class with so many of his friends. He was thrilled that he only had math homework the first week. Zachary will also have to get used to only having one recess this year. Hard to believe he hits double digits in a couple of weeks.
Paul has taken the biggest step this year. He has transferred to the fifth grade. This is the first time in his fourteen years as a teacher where he will have a self-contained classroom. I love seeing the excitement he exudes as he works in his classroom and prepares lessons for the week.
Entering my second year as high school principal has me ecstatic too. We are the building of internal change. I am anxious to see how students will grow because of all the efforts their teachers, paraeducators, staff, and administrators will put forth.
I love learning, whether it’s my own, my sons’, my husbands’, our students’, our teachers’, whomever’s. I love it! Here’s to continuing our life educations!
