Back-to-School Quotes to Energize You for the New School Year
I’ve had a lot of first days of school. From being a student to teaching, I’ve probably done at least 25. Yep, 25.
For me, the first day of school was always exciting. I was usually a little nervous or a lot nervous on my 1st day of teaching! I was meticulously prepared and just hoped that everything went as planned. Sometimes it did and sometimes it didn’t. And then there was that 1 first day when I sang to my class. (That’s a whole other blog post!)
But I know that not everyone is quite as jazzed for the big day. So, I’ve collected some back-to-school quotes to get you ready no matter your attitude – some to give you confidence, some to give you a kick in the pants, and some to make you commit to being a better person.
