It’s time to shed the soggy tears,
for summer’s end and a brand new year.
Shortly kids will be returning to the work of life-long learning.
It’s another year of building trust and learning how to readjust,
To ever changing regulations and evolving expectations.
So dust the cobwebs off the brain and lesson plans you must maintain.
Make your lessons relevant by attending staff development,
To learn engagement strategies for avoiding instruction tragedies.
So wipe away those soggy tears, summer’s over, school is here.
Get yourself reconnected and take joy in the unexpected.
An empty canvas, a blank slate, will be waiting for you to create a masterpiece, a work of art.
On monday it all will start.
