Summer is fading. With it the memories of the best week of my adult life. As I begin to mentally prepare for the school year, my heart is getting excited to meet my new second graders. I am also anxious to see my newly turned third graders.
The things that stuck with at TCRWP have been percolating in my mind. The changes I plan to make and all the things I need to to in preparation for the arrival of my little ones.
What I am most pleased about is my renewed focus on my own writing. Last year was an adjustment. New school. Making new friends. Learning new curriculum. This year I feel as if I am making my own way. I understand the way things are done at the new school, and now I can add my own special flavor to the mix.
With this reflection and new confidence for this year I am so excited to meet my 22 second graders!! So cheers to new pens, new ideas, and learning we each have a voice!!
