I love the first day of school. The air is just a little bit cooler, and all the students are excited about starting the school year–some of them about beginning college for the first time. I’m anticipating the classes I’m taking and the ones I’m teaching; I’m going to learn new things and maybe so will some of my students.
Now if only I could keep that same excitement into early November, when papers will really start weighing down on me. I guess nothing gold can stay.
