I’m not ready. At all. To say that two pieces of my heart are missing 8 hours a day for 180 days a year is an understatement. The time and memories I have made with them throughout the years is enough for an entire collection of novels. The laughs, tears, fights and lessons will still continue along with the ache in my heart I have every year on this night. The eve of school. The eve that makes us accountable and responsible and on edge and exhausted. The eve that the teachers also have jitters taking on 30 more kids than they had the day before. The eve that closed another chapter and opened a new year, only for it to pass as quickly as the last. Please be kind to us 2019-2020 school year. Best of luck to everyone, big and small, old and young, parents and teachers, and especially those sending their babies to kindergarten for the first time. #norwin#knights#mybabies#forever#lovethem#ljreedphotography#firstday
Year 7 starts tomorrow && I’m ready to meet my students! I’m also nervous, terrified, excited, && slightly obsessed with how my room came out! ❤️❤️
I’m starting year 7 at a new school, new grade && new content! I’m eager to get this year started, but I’m feeling like a first year teacher all over again! I know I’m in the right spot, but change is hard. Change is scary! .
To everyone starting their first year or twenty-first year, I hope you all have an amazing school year! .
Having pre stress, stress for school tomorrow... eek. Balancing work + school + fun + all the things, is something I have struggled through hard. Learning that setting priorities + waking up early + being organized are key. I LOVE school + work + obviously my friends + family so they are all things I work hard for. This semester I’m working on planning ahead + putting less pressure on myself. 🤪🙌 PS what’re you wearing for the first day? I can’t decide...
Memorial Union was built to honor MU’s lost soldiers in World War I. Cadets make it a tradition to visit this spot every year during the campus run. 🏃🏽♂️It’s the perfect time for reflection before classes start!!!📚🙌🏼 #reflection#focus#firstday#tradition#keepupthegoodwork
Late #firstday post...because I didn’t know they did this picture and my heart exploded! Carter’s flourishing at Riverchase. They had a fire truck day and he was all about it. Putting him in a #montessori school was a great decision.
