Today is the first day of school in the town where I taught for 30 years.
I have to admit, this is the first time since my retirement in 2008, that I have had a twinge of longing to be back in the classroom.
I have seen several "first day of school" pictures on Facebook this morning.
Smiling faces of eager children & one cute, sad face of a former student, who was sending her son to his first day of pre-K.
To the teachers & staff who work so faithfully to educate our children,
I will be praying for you as a new school year begins.
You may never know what seeds of learning & love you are planting. Someone in your classroom this year may be a future doctor,nurse, preacher, teacher, lawyer, construction worker, mom, dad, the list goes on and on. Every year I taught I tried to remember that I could make a difference in a child's life. O yes, as you can imagine there were times that this was hard to remember.
Good luck teachers & students!
