The stores are in the middle of their back-to-school sales. My son is getting ready too; he’s selected a new lunch box and pencil pouch for the new school year. In two weeks, he’s returning to school as a fourth grader. And for six years, I was a fourth grade teacher. (I also spent five years teaching kindergarten and one year teaching fifth grade).
And I miss it. I miss teaching. I miss being in a classroom with “my kids” and teaching them. Encouraging them. Loving them.
