President's Message: How can IAGC help? We want to hear from you!
By Sally Thomson, Ed. D.
Fall is probably my favorite time of year! The air gets that crisp, clean feel to it, the skies are bluer than they've been in months, the foliage turns bright colors that glow against those October blue skies, there's a tang of wood smoke in the air, and those wonderful Fall Festivals spring up all around the countryside. And, once again, football fills my Sunday afternoons. Yes, fall is definitely my favorite time of year!
I confess that, when I first retired, it was difficult to adjust to seeing those school buses roll by without bringing me that new batch of fresh-faced, excited students who couldn't wait to begin their 9-month journey with me. I miss reading some of my favorite books aloud and sharing in the enthusiasm of my captive audience listeners. I've found other work to fill my time, of course, but my body continues to be on that school-year clock.
So, what does this new school year bring to you?
