Spring and New Beginnings/Hope by Tim Allen, 6th Grade Teacher
He is risen! He is risen indeed, alleluia.
As we have just finished celebrating Easter and Christ’s resurrection, I am reminded of all the promises of spring and new beginnings, both in and out of the classroom.
You may have noticed that it has been an exceptionally cold start to spring for us here in Seattle. Yes, we have had 1 day of 70+ degree weather a little over a week ago, but then during spring break our average temperature was the same exact average temperature as the first half of December! I read on a weather blog the other day that our average temperatures during this recent stretch (41.7 degrees) were just as unlikely as the massive heat wave we had last June, but this was much less talked about because there weren’t record setting temperatures involved. I don’t know about you, but by April I’m ready for it to be consistently getting warmer, though I feel like this year we’ve been stuck in the same pattern for the past 4 months! It’s hard to have hope when it feels like the weather is never going to change from high 40’s and clouds with some rain.
But as we celebrated Easter this past Sunday, we know that while Jesus died, he indeed rose again and gives us hope for the future. I can have hope that the weather will get warmer, because it always does. I also can have hope that all the students at Hope will come back from Spring Break with a renewed energy and enthusiasm for learning… … …fingers crossed!
For my students especially, I can have hope that they come back to the classroom ready to contribute to the betterment of each individual in the classroom: socially, emotionally, educationally, and most importantly spiritually. I am excited for the last two months of the school year and for all the learning, growing, and changing that will go on in each and every classroom here at Hope for the rest of this school year and beyond!”
