As the new school year approaches, so does the enthusiasm and optimism of children. Their excitement, anticipation, and wonderings for what the new school year will bring accompany most of them on campus the very first day.

Have you ever wondered what a student may want his or her new teachers to know at the beginning of a school year? One student shares her thoughts as she writes a letter to her new teacher in this video.

Optimistic thoughts the student presents might be plausible ones for educators to keep in mind throughout the entire school year.

The potential that lies within each one of our students and their purpose are why we, as educators, do what we do each and every work day.

Best wishes to each student, parent, and educator for a wonderful school year!
