As a teacher, I do love this time of year. It's time to get into gear and get back to some serious work. Hit the books and go to town... Off with the flip flops and here come the heels... Ciao Ciao shorts and tees and hello pencil skirts and pretty shirts... Well, ok, I do love that part, then, there's the part where I encounter a bunch of new kids and their new "expressions," - always interesting to hear what high school kids have to say, and teach me, from time to time.
Yes, by the end of August I'm ready to go! Ready to teach. Ready to get out the power points, take notes and lecture away on the importance of learning history, art and language. However, come October, I could certainly use a bit of a break... :) Maybe I should bottle up some of the excitement?
I do miss my little girl, all of 3 years old, as I return to my career. But I see just how much she loves her "school" - preschool, that is - and it's all ok. She gears up for a new year, just like mom. Hopefully, she too will find and always have the same excitement for "back to school," as her mother.
Happy School Days!
Some of my Etsy Back to School finds - or, some random things that get me even more excited about going back to work :)
