It's a question I am often asked as summer draws to a close and a new school year approaches...
Am I ready?
What is it I am to be ready for?
Exciting learning experiences with my students?
Creating a classroom community?
Finding cool ways to connect students, books, and technology?
Developing fun collaborative lessons with grade level teachers?
Then, yes, I am ready.
I love this first day. Its a fresh start for everyone. You can read
the hopeful expressions on teachers and students faces alike. The 437 or so faces that I helped greet this morning all looked pretty excited to be back at school. Even
those who feel prepared but not ready or ready but not prepared are all
thrown together on this first day to begin creating a new learning
Ready or not, here we come!
