In the often hectic world of teaching, it is nice to be able to take some time and reconnect with each other. One of the ways our school does this is by keeping certain traditions. Today, as we do every year, we had our St. Patrick’s Day lunch. Everyone participated by contributing items for the lunch. There is the wearing of the green and the familiar and comforting smells of soup and other goodies coming from the faculty room.
On this day there aren’t enough chairs for everyone around the tables, and regardless of how busy everyone is it’s not as important as the warm bowl of soup from the delicious choices available.
It’s time to reconnect and laugh. It’s time to forget about diets and just try the varieties of soups, breads, cookies, and shamrock shakes to get you through the rest of the day. I hope we never give up our traditions.
