"What'll we do with ourselves this afternoon?"cried Daisy, "and the day after that, and the next thirty years?""Don't be morbid," Jordan said. "Life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the fall."
- The Great Gatsy
Isn't this the truth...especially for school children, college students, and teachers. Every fall is a new year with new classes, new students, new friends, new joys, and new challenges.
As a former teacher of 41 years, this quote has always spoken so loudly to me. Late in August when the leaves were just beginning to change color, I always felt a sense of excitement and eagerness to start a new school year. Now, I want to share this quote with others who might be experiencing the same feelings.
