Always a new start.

In another life, the one I just left, I would be spending this week in the classroom, juggling the emotions of hope and confidence with a nagging resentment that I was missing a warm sunny August day. My lifelong pal Claudia told me many years ago that, despite the strikes against choosing teaching as a profession, there was the new beginning every year. Even a bad year has an ending, and a teacher can annually start fresh. A luxury most other professions can't boast. I'm wishing all of my friends and teaching colleagues a good year as I move on to something else. I am thinking about you all in the classroom as I enjoy the warm summer days.
