::IN TWELVE HOURS, THEY WILL BE BACK FROM P.E. ::
Tomorrow is the first day of school. I am scared, excited, nervous, and ecstatic all at once. It's the culmination of a process I started almost a year ago
-- and I couldn't be prouder of myself. I didn't jump ship from the Museum; I took my time to find another, more suitable ship to swim to first.
I'm wondering what the kids'll think of me. I'm curious about what they'll tell their parents about me tomorrow night. I'm glad my classroom is ready.
Not everyone gets two chances to have a First Day of School. I am lucky that I do.
