When Beaufort County School District students made their way to school and to their classrooms to open the 2022-23 academic year on Monday, they were concluding a process as much as they were starting one. For weeks, BCSD administrators, staff, and most of all teachers, had been preparing for this day, and subsequently this year.

So, I enjoy spending extra time setting it up. I love seeing the joy and excitement on the little faces when they come into our classroom. They are sometimes scared in the beginning and it warms my heart to see them smile. We spend our time in the classroom singing, dancing, learning, laughing, and enjoying each other. We have fun. Plus, I get to do this with a wonderful friend. Together, we grow big hearts and minds.”
