New Beginnings

Tomorrow marks the day that many students will begin a new school year.  With each new year comes different challenges but also new adventures.  I was always anxious at the beginning of each school year and especially nervous when it came to the years that I was changing schools and entering a different echelon.  When I went to college there were a lot of changes in my life.  I moved to a new town and was required to build new friendships and learn a new style of living.  As excited as I was to move away from my parents and to be independent I was overwhelmed by the many differences in my life.  As I enter a new phase in my life I am reminded of those times.

Throughout my academic years I had many amazing teachers that helped me to stay on the correct path and mentor me along the way.  Now that I am living with my sister, who is a teacher , I see firsthand how much effort she puts in.  She spends countless hours being sure that each student understands what she is teaching and goes above and beyond what is required of her.  Her students are very lucky to have her as a mentor as they develop in their lives. 

So best of luck to all the teachers and students who are starting a new school year!
