When I first started teaching there were...
While I genuinely think that all of these things have made me a better teacher, I think they have their negatives too. I think that many of us put pressure on ourselves to make everything PERFECT. I think teachers by nature are perfectionists and when we see photos of other classrooms and teaching materials, we want ours to be just as *good.*
*I think we owe it to all the people in our lives (families, friends, AND students) to take a break. A BIG Break. Like forget school even exists break.
OF COURSE I have things on my list (that one that just keeps getting longer and longer), we will never get this summer again. Nash, Emmie, and Smith will never be this age again.
So I think we all deserve a deep breath, lazy days, and time with those we love, because Lord knows the stress will be there in August/September.
As for me? This is what you will find me doing for the next two months!
