There are many New Years to mark throughout the year: new calendar years, new fiscal years, lunar new years, religious new years, cultural new years. This week, news is slight, so I take the opportunity to wish ARLIS-NA/MW’s academic members a safe, easy, pleasant start to the new academic year.
I have never gotten over the desire to buy fresh pencils and notebooks in late August. And crayons. The scent of a freshly opened Crayola 64-box is as much part of my Fall as colored leaves and crisp apples.
May your students have interesting questions and sufficient patience to find the answers.
