For the first time in over fifty years, I’m not preparing to enter a school building. When I stopped teaching and started writing full-time, I didn’t anticipate the feelings I’d have at the start of this school year. I feel like a blood hound sniffing for a lost scent. For Heaven’s sake, where are my crayons and wheat paste?
When you think about it, school consumes a large chunk of your life. You might be a student, a teacher, or a parent of a school-age child; sooner or later you’ll march through the doors of a school building. For many of you, that time is now.
As you poke through your school memories, you’ll find moments of truth. If you’d like, share them in a comment.
Have a great year and thanks for stopping by!
