Today was my first day of school.
Not the "real" first day of school with students and such. Just teachers learning how to teach kids to think, cleaning rooms, setting them up, finding things in your classroom that weren't there when you left for summer vacation that somehow magically appear. (Does this happen to any of you or does it only happen at my school?) This year it was a cart with tons of bingo games, a seat cushion, an easel and felt board, a small, plastic, toy ladder, a green ball and probably a few other things I'm forgetting.
The picture above is a student's representation of me and our class done in years past.
Kind of fun, huh?
If you would like to, I would be grateful for your prayers for me as I begin this new school year.
My scripture for the year is Philippians 2:13 - 16
" . . . for it is God who works in you to will and to act according to his good purpose. Do everything without complaining or arguing, so that you may become blameless and pure, children of God without fault in a crooked and depraved generation, in which you shine like stars in the universe as you hold out the word of life . . . ."
What about you? Is there anything I can pray about for you?
I hope all of you other teachers had a good first day today or whenever yours is!
