The thrill might be gone. But you can meet the challenge of the normal.

No matter where you are, the school year is well underway. The thrill of the first week has subsided; it feels almost like summer never happened. Now normalcy: the daily task of instructing, encouraging, measuring, consoling, admonishing . . .  in short, teaching. This is a hugely important task you are involved in. Choose your viewpoint: you are fighting against ignorance and sloth, or you are promoting goodness and growth. Either way, your students need you. Fortunately you are equipped to meet this challenge. You are skilled and caring. There are people who love and support you. Go boldly and bless people in the week to come!
