President's Message Diane Pevsner, University of Alabama at Birmingham dpevsner@uab.edu As a teacher, the beginning of school always marks a new beginning for me. Even though school starts in the middle of the calendar year, it is an opportunity to start fresh. New clothes, new school supplies, and new classrooms mark the beginning of the excitement that the upcoming nine months may bring. As teachers, we are the lucky ones. We get to participate in the growth and development of our students. In addition to this, if we take the opportunity, we get to witness each of the small changes that add up to large successes over time. To me, this is the equivalent of getting to watch a caterpillar transform into a beautiful butterfly in slow motion. We get to witness each tiny step that can be so easily missed by others. What a great career we teachers have. My hope for you during this upcoming school year, and all of the ones to follow, is that you will take time to reflect throughout your extremely busy day so that you don't miss all of the small wonders your students have to show you. 8
