Back to School and New Beginnings

It’s back-to-school time here! My son starts school tomorrow, and I start teaching again at Rider University this Thursday.

I’m excited to be returning to campus this week, and I’m looking forward to seeing my students again. Many of the students enrolled in my COM106 Writing for the Communication Professions and COM240 Public Relations courses I’ve met before in previous classes… I’m also looking forward to meeting my new students. 😉

I’ve always loved this time of year and the whole back-to-school routine. My son thinks I’m “crazy” and he can’t understand “why I love school so much.” When I was younger, my brothers used to say the same thing. So, maybe I am crazy, but I can’t remember a time when I didn’t enjoy going back to school!

Yes, being on the teaching side for the past seven years, I do have a different perspective now. But, I think it’s my lifetime love of learning and my natural curiosity that drive my feelings about this time of year. It’s also the fact that the start of each semester is a new beginning and an opportunity to meet new people.

How do you feel about going back to school (or your kids going back to school) and this time of year, in general? I’d love to hear your thoughts, so please post your comments here or tweet me @kathymagrino.

Happy Back-to-School!
