Sweet summer time
There is nothing finer
Much to the general public thinking teachers do not get three months off...well at least I do not...Nor do we waste our summer away floating in water. Sure we relax and recharge for the up coming year, but doing nothing is not an option.
I don't know about you, but I stress out a little if I accomplish nothing over the summer for the upcoming school year. It gets to the point where I am dreaming in my sleep of what I need to do. So what does a teacher do during the off season...they train for the upcoming year.
I am yet again teaching three grade levels...mark my words this will be the last year...
Anyways, I managed to complete a full year of vocabulary curriculum tests and all, created my syllabus brochure style, found articles for students to use for text based writing as well as up load everything to my school website. Could I have done more...sure, but it was summer and the pool looked a little lonely.
Yesterday started the first teacher day of the season and I am ready to give 110% to my soon to be students! I hope all the preparation will make the upcoming weeks go a little smoother. Now all I need to do is get into my classroom to prepare for open house on Saturday!!
