Ahhh Fall…. The cooler temps, crisp winds and falling leaves always remind me of the start of the school year. I loved this time of year when I was teaching. I have to admit, I mainly loved it because it marked the start of the buying of all the school supplies. I have a major soft spot for colorful notebooks, character shaped erasers and pencil cases with lots of
useless cool compartments. I grew up in the Lisa Frank and Trapper Keeper era, so it’s hardly my fault.
As a Kindergarten teacher, this time of year also signaled the start of parents questioning me about their child’s reading readiness.
