Fall in Birmingham brings less humidity.

As a teacher, we need to corral their attention and get them to do their work.

Fall, in most areas, means the temperatures are going down and is the signal that winter will be arriving. Fall starts in September in Alabama, just like it does in the rest of the US. The difference is that our temperatures go into the low eighties, and it signals that the humidity will soon be abating. It also means needing to go back to school. I was a teacher, and I dreaded that time of year. We had air conditioning in the schools, but many of my older students weren’t ready to return. Of course, the younger students weren’t ready to return either. There are so many changes going on about the city in the fall, that the kids are still anxious to be out and about and not stuck in a classroom for hours on end. No sooner does school start and the fall events begin. Many of my students work at the local farms and have responsibilities that carry over to the harvest festivals. Right on the heels of the harvest festivals are the winter holidays. No one wants to be in a classroom when Thanksgiving is coming, and Christmas is right behind. As a teacher, we need to corral their attention and get them to do their work. We know the older kids are going to be working on the weekends and some work during the week. We can only hope they have someplace with excellent HVAC to keep them going when trying to do the homework we assign to them. I know they wouldn’t believe me if I told them I understood. I had to go to school when the summer humidity was abating, and the fun jobs of working harvest festivals were beginning.
