September Theme: Get Schooled

It's that time of year again, at least in most parts, where students are back to the daily grind of classes and homework. For those of us who teach, this means back to classrooms, paperwork, and grading :) While the date for when students start the new year has crept more and more into August, September 1st used to traditionally mark the start of the new term (as well as the day the Hogwarts Express left 9&3/4's). So, for this month, the awesome authors on LQR will be sharing stories about getting schooled.

As I watch the new crop of students this year, I can't help but think back to those days when my life revolved around school (okay, it's still does, but not as a student anymore). It's an interesting time to spend your day in a classroom with your peers, learning (or attempting to), as well as all the social aspects that go along with it and often teach more lessons than a teacher ever could hope to (hello first romances, friendships, and drama galore!). So, stay tuned this month, there's sure to be some amazing reading!
