The first day of school was always so exciting for me! I always loved school as a student and in later years as a teacher. The start of a new school year brings the excitement of a fresh start, fun Fall days, reconnecting with classmates, meeting new teachers, and a whole year of new adventures ahead. In some ways this always felt like more of a new start to me than New Year's Day. It's a great time to reorganize, set goals, and focus on a new season.
I absolutely LOVE seeing everyone's back to school photos. Keep sharing them! Here are a few shots of my first day of Kindergarten, 1981. I didn't attend preschool, so it was my first time going away from home to school. From the looks of it, I had a great time!
Happy New School Year!
