For Texas teachers, today was the first day back. This year I am at home again as we wait on our little girl from the Congo to be able to come home. I cry every year–not because I am ungrateful to be home or for my precious little guy that is here already, but because it’s another year that I am out of the classroom. The classroom is 100% my comfort zone. It’s where I thrive.
Last year, with a newborn, I felt like I was just surviving. But this year, I feel like I can help more. Teaching is hard, you guys. You get it. You know. You are there in the trenches. I have decided that this year my goal is to just love teachers well. I’m not in the battlefield with you all, but I can still love you through your year. It’s the most rewarding job, yet the toughest and has the greatest reward, in my opinion.
At 10 p.m. last night I decided to turn on my oven and bake. So I baked and baked so that I could wish some teachers a sweet year!
It’s nothing fancy–a cute printable and plastic plates I snagged from the Dollar Tree–4 for $1.
