Spidey’s Serene Sunday – Part 338 – The End Or The Beginning

“What feels like the end, is often the beginning.”

Anon

Thanks, Spidey, for putting a positive spin on a time of the year that I sometimes find quite difficult.

It is the end. Yup, the end of the summer holidays. Meaning time to go back go school.

But, just because a lovely break and time of rest has come to an end, it doesnt mean that there is nothing left to look forward to.

We are at the start of a new academic year. Soon, there will be my small army of new recruits joining the school. Who knows what the year will bring?

Will we manage a full year, with no remote learning or lockdowns? I hope so. These children have had far too much disruption over the last 18 months.

I’m dreading the thought of Ofsted coming to visit, though, as they might, this year, because I will be a part of the leadership team, so far more accountable for the way the department is run. That’s not so say I think I’m doing a bad job. No, we have a wonderful team, and every one works well together for the good of the children.

But, still, it is nerve wracking.

So, I’ll put that to the back of my mind and just get excited with everything else that is happening, and being able to welcome a whole host of new learners to school!

So, what about you? Do you enjoy new beginnings?

Wishing you a wonderfully peaceful Sunday, Peeps!

    I’m thinking of you, Ritu, and wishing you a good school year ahead. I finished our teacher week, which was long and hard. That’s why I’m behind on everything. Children come on Tuesday, and I have a gazillion butterflies in my stomach, like I do every year on the first day. 🦋

    Wishing you a great new year, Ritu. It is spring day in South Africa tomorrow. The 1st day of 9 months of summertime.

    They say every ending is a new beginning, so I am letting summer go and looking forward to fall.
    I placed Spidey’s quote in my Quotes notebook. TY

    First of all, bravo to you and all Educators who have managed the most disruptive year of your young student’s lives…second, new challenges are exciting, but you unfortunately still have the challenges from he pandemic to deal with – an extra layer making the learning process more difficult..but you are a rock star so you will soar!

    Sis, now its time to collect some positive moments, pushing you over the next academic year. 😉 This one “small army of new recruits”, sounds like you will try to realize one or more characters of Harry Potter’s stories. Lol Are you camouflaged yet? Best wishes, Sis! Enjoy the last days, within your family, with your muse Sonu, and in usage of your beautiful yard. xx Michael

    Best wishes Ritu. My mother was a former teacher (1st and 2nd grade), so we shared her enthusiasm and trepidation about a new year. Be safe with all that is going on. You add value. Thanks, Keith

    I do love the new energy that September brings, and I’m making lots of plans for my fiction writing now that the summer holidays are drawing to a close. Lots of freelance writing to power through as well, so I’m hoping to use my time better to fit everything in.

    I do enjoy new beginnings. We often had people visiting our school to evaluate us. I was never into the dog and pony show because we did an outstanding job for all our students. It is nerve wracking to be under the microscope. I am sure you will do great.
