The beginning of the school year is always an exciting time. Teachers all over the country are busy creating the ideal climate in their classroom. They are arranging the desks and tables to create cooperative learning groups or to encourage large group discussion. They are hanging posters on their walls to welcome students and encourage respect and responsibility. They prepare curriculum, school supplies and support materials. A teacher's work is never done. There is always another idea or task on the list of things to do!! Teachers spend alot of time in August preparing an environment that is conducive to learning.
Today marks the first day of my 30th year of teaching. When I say this, I can hardly believe it. It seems like forever and just yesterday at the same time!
