I know some of you have already started school and some haven't, but what do you like most about the first day of school? I love how you can feel the excitement in the air. I teach 5th grade and it's their first year in middle school. The kids come in so excited and nervous about being middle schoolers and they really don't know what to expect. Everything is new to them (lockers, switching classes) and I love being able to walk/talk them through it all and ease their fears. By the end of the day they realize that middle school is no where near as scary as they thought it would be. I love that.
