Back in the Saddle
As a teacher I look forward to the Christmas break,the New Year and the beginning of a new semester. I like the month of January. It is a quiet time in the calendar. Not much going on. There are basketball games, but for the most part not to many activities are on the schedule. I always hope for some snowfall that will brighten up the dullness of a cold winter day. It also seems to add to the quiet stillness of winter. One teacher wrote a reflection about winter being a time to recharge ourselves. Taking time to be with family and friends and to enjoy the quietness of winter. On this cold wet winter day I am reminded of her reflection to take time to enjoy the winter stillness before the school schedule picks up with Spring activities.
