Meet the Teacher

I'm sure that we all have August memories of putting fears aside and returning to a school that seems somehow more foreign than the old familiar building that we left in May. Maybe your mom or dad accompanied you or maybe you pranced in gleefully, loaded down with school supplies. Whatever the specifics of the back to school memory, I know that we can all think of a time when we went to school with the specific purpose of meeting our teachers.

This afternoon, I'll be that teacher. The one who was familiar but not personal to the kids last year as they were in first grade. The one who they'll be looking to for confidence and love in a class that is new and scary.

Wish me luck!

There are lots of parents hoping to look at the list and see that their child is in your class. I can just hear the little voices excitedly tell their friends and siblings, "I got Mrs. Pond"!

If anyone can do it, and do it well... it's you!

It's that time again! You'll do great. And, no, I can't believe we've all been going for five years. Crazy!
