Back to School

Tuesday, August 08, 2017

Tomorrow is our first day of school. It seems like yesterday I was closing out my classroom for summer and now it is back to school! So many things happened this summer that I barely had time to relax but God is good and I hope to be able to keep myself focused on the new school year.

On Saturday, my youngest graduate college - great day and celebration for him for all his accomplishments. His brother came from Delaware and we had a great weekend. Congratulations Martin - you did it son!!! emoticon

On Monday, we had our Teacher Kick Off for the whole Diocese. Great keynote speaker to get us motivated for the new year. However, I was greatly surprised, honored and humbled that I was awarded the "Diocese of Orlando Distinguished Catholic School Award for 2017"
Needless to say I was speechless and so caught off guard. emoticon emoticon

Today I am in my class putting on the finishing touches and getting ready to receive my students. I ask for patience, wisdom and understanding to deal with each and everyone of my students this year. I love what I do and it is always exciting to start off with a new group and see them grow and blossom before your eyes.

So may this new school year 2017-2018 be an adventurous and fun filling year for all of us!

    Don't know why I don't get notices of your blogs, though I did know you have early-start school years. So how did your first week go! Are you exhausted from all the excitement?

    emoticon emoticon on being recognized for your teaching. Thank you for the role you play in the lives of children.

    Hope this year is the best one ever. Who knows. You may have a future president or researcher who finds a cure for cancer or future best mom or dad or writer in your class.

    Summer certainly has flown by. Hard to believe some schools are in session and others getting ready!
