How do I feel in September.
I am hopeful, excited, and eager. I have spent the summer learning, researching, and planning. I cannot wait to collaborate with my peers and students. I look forward to seeing the lights go on as my students learn and explore.
How do I feel in June.
I am tired, lost, and alone. I pray that I can make it through each day. I don’t understand why they don’t bring a pencil, paper, or their work. I want to scream, wake up, is anybody in there, and why don’t you care? Did anybody learn anything this year? Why am I the only one that cares? What is wrong with me?
Luckily this summer I am going to relax, refresh, and regain my perspective. I am going to refine my style and learn something new.
I am going back to school in September a new and improved me ready to engage my students and provide them with a terrific example of how to be a life long learner.
