The End of the Year School Year, That is!

Oh wow, it's the middle of May. If we hadn't had six snow days, we'd be in the final final stretch for this year. As it is, we can see the final stretch...we're almost there...the weather is wonderful. The students are restless. The teachers (some of them) are getting restless. We're ready for the end...

Summer Vacation.

The only time in my life I didn't get it was in college, when I took classes and worked during the summer.

At that time I didn't know I was going to become a teacher, so I didn't know I would end up having summer vacation for the rest of my life.

The thing about summer break, is that we really need it. It doesn't necessarily have to be in the summer, the reasoning behind summer break is sort of archaic, but wow, when you're doing creative work day in and day out, and frustrating work, and trust me teaching is both creative and frustrating, you need a break.

We're at that point right now. I need a break, the kids need a break. I can't imagine a job where I had to do the same thing all the time with only a few weeks of vacation.
