The agenda has been written.
The copies have been collated.
The pencils have been sharpened.
The paper has been stacked.
The desks shine.
The floors sparkle.
The white board looks
like new-fallen snow.
I am READY.
Ready to teach.
Ready to learn.
Ready to greet 150 new souls.
Ready to embark on the voyage
of another school year.
Education is not filling a pail but the lighting of a fire. ~William Butler Yeats
