Celebrate: A-Ha’s

I can’t let this weekend slip by without tipping my hat to my a-ha moments this week.

Heat and the pressure of the impending school year built up and by Friday, I walked out of my classroom with a long to-do list. And here I sit, on Sunday night, with much of my list checked off, a fresh one made, and some realizations.

First: No matter how much time I have to get ready, I will always need more time. I will always have a new list.

Second: I will always have too many books for my space, and I will always need more books. This weekend we looked for new bookshelves and found none to our liking. However, I bought three books.

Third: I will always feel excited and a bit of anxiety at the beginning of the school year. That’s part of why I love it.

Fourth: I will always love school supplies. 3-M should create a monument to honor the teachers who have made a difference in their bottom line.

Fifth: I will always feel each year with students is a gift.  I have the best job. I get to think deeply with and about children as they learn.

This week I celebrate my a-ha’s: what (if I’m lucky) will always be true for me.
