Another school year started today. Another empty room comes alive one August day. What was once four walls, bulletin bare, the lights were on but nobody was home, now has a heart that beats rapidly from anxious eyes that trigger an affective filter to be lowered to learn by just one confident, warm, smile. Not just anxious eyes: curious eyes, smiling eyes, tearful eyes, fearful eyes, observant eyes, confused and dazed. Twenty-one strangers gather together to acquire knowledge, experience, friendship, respect, responsibility, compassion, literacy, laughter, companionship, story and song. One hundred eighty days. Another school year started today. The wheels are in motion, the ball is rolling, there's no looking back; eyes forward and I like it. Another school year started today. Let's get going. We're going somewhere, enjoying the journey, and curios about the destination. You never know, so here we go. We're going somewhere, another school year started today.
