Just like the last day of school, the first day is a bitter-sweet moment.  On the last day of school you have a joy about summer vacation to recharge and rest.  However you know it’s that last moment with these students.  With some students that might present mixed emotions.  The first few weeks of the new year aret stuffed with thoughts of what is required by who.  These demands  swirl in your brain with fresh memories of  summer–leisurely waking and sipping a second cup of coffee.  Your emotions divide and struggle for attention between your own family’s needs and your school family’s needs.  Room preparations, lesson plans and “Other” responsibilities demand every ounce of your management skills.  Then finally the bell rings and “they” come in the door.  Then you remember.  Hopeful faces, eyes full of questions. “Will you be mean to me or sweet? Can you see my hidden pain?  Do you have answers to my questions?  Do you know what I need?  Will you like me? ”
