Little Miss Techie will head off to kindergarten in just 13 days. I’m waiting for the anxiety, nervousness, and apprehension to set in but so far she seems fine. We’ve bought our school supplies, packed our school box, and have our backpack ready to go. School could start tomorrow and I swear she would skip off to meet her new friends without looking back.
Like many of my friends, I am in disbelief that my little girl is going to kindergarten already. I’m excited but nervous for her. I lie awake wondering what school will be like. The mom in me wonders if she will she know anyone in her class, if she’ll make friends on the first day, and if the day will be too long. The teacher in me wants her to be challenged while enjoying school.

PBS did not compensate me to share these back to school resources. As a parent of a soon-to-be kindergartener and a teacher who has seen her fair share of separation anxiety, I’m happy to share resources and tissues. Lots of tissues.
