The first day of school will be here in a heartbeat; and while you still need to recharge, it’s a good idea to brainstorm plans for the coming term.

How are you going to make this the best school year ever? What will you do differently? How far do you dare to reach out of your comfort zone?

As with any new year, make resolutions now. Be the light, be the flint that sparks the lamp of knowledge within your students. Consider how you will connect with parents of your charges, because involved parents make a significant impact on student success.

What will you do? Yet whatever you decide, be sure to still pack in some summer fun while you can.

“But everywhere I look I see fire; that which isn’t flint is tinder, and the whole world sparks and flames.” Pilgrim at Tinder Creek by Annie Dillard
