Day One – Monday, August 27th, 2012

I returned to school today – teacher call back week to begin another year in the classroom. This year will be far different than any year I have ever experienced. In two days, I will meet with a surgeon and determine the timing of the first major surgery I’ve ever had to endure. 

Life is filled with the unexpected. I thought about creating this page over the summer as a way to enhance my writing, but more importantly to create an outlet for the moments that occur in my classroom, and of course in my life. The prospect of surgery is quite daunting, but may add more realism to this blog over the course of the year. 

Today was a good day. It is always exciting to see people after the summer passes. There is excitement in the air, but also a great deal of nervous energy. In fact, today our principal began the morning with a breathing exercise and then followed it with an explanation that we are all feeling the anxiety of the first day of school. That really helped me realize that we were all sharing this experience together.

Let’s have a remarkable year together.

Please I would love you to share words, suggestions …
