A New School Year

Hear that? 

It's the sound of all the teachers in town turning off alarms that haven't been set this early in months. 

We nervously rise and begin to prepare for the day, though many haven't slept a week. 

Butterflies flutter in tummies despite how many times some of us have done this. 

We hold our heads up high like we know what we're doing, but we are still anxious about what the year will bring. 

We arrive early to make sure everything is perfect because anything less would be unacceptable on this day. 

We catch our breaths as the first bell rings. 

We smile big and shake hands as the children filter down the hallway. 

It's going to be another wonderful school year.


  1. Awww hope you have a great day!!

  2. I feel you girl but we made it! I am lucky next week we have a 3 day week! Horray!
