Pushed by my PLN

Last week was the start of a new school year for me. No matter how many first days and first weeks of school I am a part of, I always seem to forget just how exhausting this time of year is.  And there are certainly times throughout the school year where that same sense of overwhelming exhaustion comes back to haunt me.
