It’s that time of year.
The annual, magical beginning of the school year…Even after all the years since I left teaching for law, I still feel that twinge in early September, or late August. There is something magical and special about starting afresh every year. Our nation experiences that new beginning every year. I hope you enjoy it this year, as you start back to school in September or August.
In close to 30 years of practicing law, I can tell you–there’s nothing like it in this biz. For us lawyers, instead of the annual fresh start, when we return to the office from vacation, ‘stuff’ is piled high on our desks and in emails. That’s because life did not stop, as it does in schools, but went on while we basked in the sun. Now we need to catch up (and wonder if taking that time off was worth the reentry pain).
But, I digress, for educators, students, and parents, September is a magical time of fresh start, possibilities, hopes, dreams, renewal. I wish you all a happy ‘back to school’ of success and achievement in 2009-2010.
