The Best of Times--The Worst of Times?
By Mike Watson
Mixed feelings of exhilaration and impending doom still grip me at this time of year. Excitement about the commencement of a new school year was, and is, often overshadowed by the thought of rising daily before sun-up to prepare for a day in the classroom. During the school year, the same feelings accompanied later Sunday afternoons--foreshadowing the coming of Monday morning. Don't get me wrong, I loved school, and my friends and teachers and learning--at least in certain subjects.
Those mixed feelings continued true from the fall of 1965, when I started school, and continued through the beginning of school-year 2009-2010, my last year in the classroom! With thirteen years outside the education field, I still feel anticipation at this time of year... and I still wake up early in mid-winter to check school closings and delays!
