This morning as my post-retirement adventure began, I calculated the number of “first days of school” I’ve observed in my career. Counting the 7 years at Louisiana College, today was my 36th school year first-day.

Gosh! That’s a lot of school year beginnings!

In the end, it was a good day. An excellent day, in fact. My St. Edmund students are polite and respectful, even if they’re a little talkative (but normally so). Overall, they’re pleasant and well-rounded. They respect authority and many of them really seem motivated to learn.

I think this can be a special school year. I’m glad that I’m too young to retire!

The classroom made ready last summer was inhabited today!
