I have finally started summer as of this morning! As a teacher, that’s a big deal – I mean, sure, we technically aren’t paid to work for two months, but I LIVE for my summers. Finally, teachers get time to detox from the crazy life of the classroom, remove themselves from the office politics, and relax.
However, I am finding that even though it’s finally summer (for me), I am still stuck in teaching. I have ideas for the fall constantly invading my head. Also, we all know there’s the summer planning that has to get done since I have two new classes this fall. Finally, twitter is a blessing and a curse – everyday I reconsider my practice at least 10 times… and thus, there goes my ‘relaxing’ summer. 🙂
The lesson here is that you can take the teacher out of the classroom, but you can never take the profession out of the teacher.
