It is that time of year. You have certainly spent hours, days and maybe even weeks preparing for the arrival of your newest students. You have hung bulletin boards, arranged desks, labeled school supplies, confirmed first day transportation, thought through lesson plans and somewhere in there tried to catch a few Zs. But let’s be honest, all this preparation has left you tired and a bit overwhelmed. Stop for a moment. Put down the laminating, name tags and piles of back-to-school paper work. Take a few minutes and read What Students Remember Most About Teachers. Chances are it may give you great perspective and remind you that while the classroom and lesson plans are essential, they are not the most important focus.
