and all through the house
the teachers were typing…
and planning… and sleeping.
The first day clothes were set out with care
knowing five o’clock soon would be there.
The classrooms were ready (or at least close enough!)
for the students and teachers to fill them love.
Yet again, I am so grateful for a job I love. Even still, the butterflies have started. It’s always hard to fall asleep on the night before school starts, even as a teacher!
