It's the last week of school. Everyone is tired. The rooms are getting broken down. The kids are scrambling for last minute things. It's finals. People are tired and need a break.
Summer vacation is necessary, is essential, for rejuvenation, for remembering why we teach.
My plans, after I finish this stack of grading, and this marathon week of finishing the year out....are to ride my bike, garden, take pictures, and write. A lot.
I love teaching. But I also love summer vacation.
