It’s sounding DIFFERENT outside these days. Here in Michigan, early September, I’m hearing a constant hum of crickets all day. As a matter of fact, as I am now writing, with my windows open, I hear them. Falls coming, and I love it!! It fills me with anticipation of new beginnings, of a new school year!! I’m a dork! Even though I only teach one class a school semester, and I only have one child left in school (a college senior), I just LOVE it!! And I am an actual online student, so that counts too! Nevertheless, I KNOW!! Not EVERYONE shares this thrill.
For many, the thought of a new school year can produce dread or anxiety at a variety of levels. This can apply to parents, students and teachers, too. Today I address my parents and teachers with some tips and reminders that will hopefully contribute to a more peaceful mind.
These are all tips that I've had to continually remind myself, too, at one time or the other. I hope you find some that prove helpful, as well. Every day is a gift and that includes school days! Claim it!!
