I”m always excited as a new school year approaches. It”s the time of year when all the pencils are sharp and none of the crayons are broken and I”m filled with a sense of hope and possibility. It”s an annual “do-over.”
I”ve been an elementary teacher for 25 years in New Jersey, Illinois, and Massachusetts. During that time I”ve taught many diverse students in urban, suburban, and rural schools.
