A New Journey Has Begun

The end of the “summer” and the Labour Day weekend signalled the start to another school year.  Certainly the summer itself was not what many in Southern Ontario expected it to be.  It was cooler than normal and probably much less sunny.  I couldn’t complain, the much less humid summer meant more time outside with the kids playing with the neighbourhood children.  There were many days where it was a challenge to bring them in to cool off and take a break.  We would often eat lunch outside and continue where we left off.  We as a family enjoyed the summer, even though it could have been warmer and sunnier.

Beyond the daily hustle and bustle of enjoying kid life, there were always the thoughts ahead to the new school year, and the journey that lie ahead in opening a new school.  The was much uncertainty, I would constantly have the thoughts of needing to plan out what my year would look like.  What teacher doesn’t look ahead to the coming year, even if they are on break?  The answer is few, so as I envisioned the year ahead, I also realized that I could be planning for a grade that I may not teach.  In turn this allowed me to think more generally about how I would approach a group of students who were likely going to be coming from various different communities.

So, here is to a new year, in a new place with some familiar faces but many new ones.
