It’s a few days before the first day of school and Craig Wallace isn’t sleeping well.

The fact is Wallace usually doesn’t sleep well this time of year. He didn’t as a teacher or an as associate principal. It’s just too exciting to sleep. To Wallace, the first day of school is unrivaled, like a trip to Disney World or the night before a big holiday.

“It’s like going to bed on Christmas Eve,” he said of his feelings the night before the first day.
