Get Ready, Get Set, Go!
On Wednesday, Aug. 22, all Washington County Public Schools open for the school year. School supplies will have been gathered, labeled, and organized as eager students, their families, their teachers, administrators and other school staff prepare for a great new school year.
As a former Maugansville fifth-grade teacher, I always loved getting my classroom ready and eagerly anticipated the students and their families I would be working with. I was hopeful, excited and, yes, even a little bit anxious. Every new school year challenged me to get to know my new students, their families and the curriculum so that I could be the best teacher I could be.
