"Be made new in the attitude of your minds..." Ephesians 4:23
The teacher's countdown:
Day - 5 return and enjoy co-workers :)
Day - 4 deal with problems and unexpected changes :l
Day - 3 meetings, meetings, meetings :/
Day - 2 dazed and glazed :\
Day - 1 panic as last minute preparations are done :o
Day - 0 smile and greet the students :)
As the days and minutes tick by, so do the questions in my head. Are all the lists done, have i left any children off the roll, do i have all the necessary materials? This is the last day to prepare before the arrival of the students. Are you ready?
Even if everything is not perfect, that will be okay. The most important item in the classroom Monday will be you. Remember, first impressions are important and lasting. Even if the room or paper work is not perfectly ready, let our minds be perfectly ready to receive and welcome some of our Father's most precious jewels... our students. They are ready to shine for you!
have a Light-filled day!
