As school is about to begin again, my mind wanders to the children. Most are happy to get back in the swing of things because I keep hearing how bored they have become whenever I happen to see them. I for one, want to stretch the time a little bit longer.
The new students — the sixth-graders — will experience something quite different than what they are used to. For one, they will have more than one teacher and have to change classrooms for each period. That alone is a scary thought for a little one.
