Many people who do not teach do not understand what it means to return to the classroom year after year after summer vacation. It takes a toll on all of us physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Getting back into routine takes time.
Through her eyes, she “gets it” totally. Replace the word her with him, and this could be written by my perspective.
“Being a teacher is hard. But it’s good.” I love being a teacher. After all, I have been a certified one since 1990. I just wish that I could teach and not have to worry about all the “extra” that goes along with the job. We as teachers give so much.
Over the next three days, I will sit through all day meetings reviewing policies, schedules, and routines. Pray for me!
I am looking forward to another good and successful school year.
Enjoy the Journey, y’all!
