Back To School: Close to that Time!

Author TLanette Pollard as a Power Puff Girl

One more day…That’s all I have before school starts. One More Day! That’s right, tomorrow is “Back to School” for me. It will be my 26th “First Day of School.” I’m not ready! But, here it is, another new school year. Another new set of smiling students and parents. Another reminder of why I chose this career. As usual, the day will go well.  So, what’s the difference? Well… I’m realizing that I’m experiencing the last few “First Days of School” in my career. I’m not sad, just putting it all into perspective. I’ve been planning for this moment for a while. That’s why I’ve been training in computer coding. When I retire early from teaching in the next few years, it won’t be an ending. It will be the start of another career adventure. So, to all my teacher colleagues I wish you a Happy Back to School! Keep learning.
