Buh bye summer, hello BTS!!

It is officially done. Summer schedules are over, late nights are kapoot and early rising has begun. It is BTS or Back to School for all you laymen out there.
I officially start today back at the preschool. Not only that, my youngest starts back at Homeschool High School. Can we say FULL PLATE!!

I cannot believe that I could not sleep last night. I mean, I slept a little bit, but I woke up several times thinking, "How will we do the tefillot again?" and "I can't wait to see so-and-so again!" I felt like a little child! Every year it's the same excitement! Do all the teachers feel this way?

We worked so hard to get the classroom set up and all the wonderful work out for the children. We also tried to create a peaceful environment along with an academically challenging classroom. Natural for the child and smooth flowing. To be honest, I look at it as a big homeschool away from home. I really cannot wait to see them and welcome all our little scholars.

To all my fellow teachers, at home and it the formal classroom setting, I wish you much success and blessing on your year. 'Shed omnipotence', trust in Hashem, keep a joyful heart and remember our focus and why we do what we do, the children!

Homeschooling through high school is such a delight-- I wish you great joy in it!

I like the concept of the preschool as a 'homeschool away from home.' That seems as if it's the way it should be for little ones.

Enjoy your school year.
