DECATUR, Ala. — After more than a year in the pandemic, one new Decatur kindergarten teacher has been busy preparing her classroom for the first day of classes: August 5.
"I'm really excited to meet my students. I've been waiting for this moment for a long time. I'm just really grateful to be at this point and have this opportunity to be here at Banks Caddell," said new kindergarten teacher Meg Boston.
Many teachers had to put their dreams of being in the classroom on hold during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Boston was lucky enough to land a job teaching kindergarten at Banks Caddell Elementary School in Decatur. Before accepting this role, Boston was able to get some teaching experience as a substitute teacher, but this will be her first year as a full-time teacher.
"Everyone remembers their first year in kindergarten. I just hope to make it a good one. Really make my students feel important and excited about learning," said Boston.
Boston says she aims to create a safe space for her students and that she is grateful for the opportunity.
