School will be starting again here in Texas in a little over three weeks. I must say, it will seem strange to not be up at my school busily putting up bulletin boards, passing out textbooks, and making lesson plans in preparation for the upcoming school year. There will be new teachers just like I once was. Right out of college and eager to begin their career. Their enthusiasm and love for the children will make up for any mistakes they may make. Let us remember our teachers, administrators, bus drivers, cafeteria workers, custodians and all those who will make a tremendous impact on our children. This will be the first experience of being away from mommy and daddy for some, a move to a higher school such as middle school, high school or college for others. I ask God to encompass His guardian angels around our children and keep them from all harm. After all, they are our nation's most precious asset.
