As the weather begins to cool down from a very hot summer, I am so thankful fall has arrived. When I think of fall, I am reminded of leaves blowing in the wind as the trees begin to prepare for the winter. As the leaves fall, it helps the tree survive the cold. This process allowed me to think about our current students and how education serves as the leaves to our tree. Every leaf symbolizes knowledge. As we continue to learn new topics, our minds make room for our growth as professionals. The leaves falling also remind me of shedding away the past for a brighter future.
