Yes, I know it’s August, but for students and teachers, we get an extra New Year. I love it because it is a fresh start regardless of what happened, including great years. If we relax and think, “Wow, I really was awesome in 2017/2018!” then we run the risk of getting complacent. And if last year had more downs than ups, the first day of school gives us the hope that this time might be better.
Either way, new school years give us the change to renew ourselves and take steps towards the people we hope to be. I look forward to working on growing into who I want to be alongside you. We are going to have a great year together.
