I can't believe it's already back to school time!! Yesterday was my first day getting into my classroom and starting the set up process. School doesn't officially start back for another week and a half but today was the first day teachers could get in and begin working on their classrooms. As much as I look forward to summer break at the end of the school year, it never fails that come August I am champing at the bit to get in my classroom and start another school year. Last night I was reflecting on my first day working in my classroom. I was there ALL day moving furniture, going through the leftover belongings of the teacher before me, organizing or trying my best to get a vision of how I wanted the classroom to look. It was exhausting yet there is no where else I would have rather been. All I could think about was how excited I am to return and continue working today. This is only my third year teaching but it's also three years in a row that I have experienced the back to school excitement. I truly hope I never loose the joy and love of back to school time.
Today I am thankful for the opportunity to have a career I love. I am a firm believer of the saying "if you love what you do you'll never work a day in your life."
..and just for fun(: This is oh so accurate... especially with the fact I am moving into a new house, starting a new school/moving into a new classroom and planning a wedding.
