This is the first Friday of the new school year. I am up early and adjusting to my morning schedule. Of course, it wouldn’t be a true Friday without joining my writing pals from Five Minute Friday. This week our prompt is Forget.
As a new school year begins, let us forget
The past three years, and all their regrets.
All the trouble we faced when we walked in the door,
May we forget each one so learners can soar.
There is hope in beginning
A clean slate, a new chance
To forget all the worries,
And step back in the dance.
There are things that we’ve learned from the world in these days,
Like how teachers should really update their ways.
We grew as a profession-we adapted, reset
Some of those changes we shouldn’t forget.
But it’s time to return to what’s best for our kids.
Distancing and hybrid learning is not what it is.
They need classrooms with teachers who love what they do,
To inspire them to wrestle with things that are new.
Together we can make this the best school year yet,
If we all commit to the goals that we set.
We can achieve so much more when our focus is clear.
May we forget all the struggle and have a great year!
