Today was the very first day of a brand new school year. I was nervous. I felt unprepared. I didn't think my classroom was complete. And then I realized why: it simply was NOT complete without the addition of my wonderful students! NOW, everything is ready to go, and I'm feeling great.
These students need positive influences in their lives. I am SO excited I get to be one of them, and I'm looking forward to this year. Just from talking to them today, I can tell that I'm going to see GREAT improvement by May. I can TASTE it!
Let's hope I can keep up this positive energy all year! :)
