Wow! What a crazy ending! You would think that after seven years of planning graduations, creating awards, packing up boxes, and saying good-byes, I would be more efficient than this!
I apologize for my absence since my last post. My past two weeks have taken me a tailspin of a journey. The end of the year brought on a very angry parent that took hours of my time. She was upset that her son didn't get an award she thought he should have gotten.
Then I packed up by classroom, finished all of my paper work, packed my car full of books to plan the next year over the summer, and headed home for a relaxing three days. Then what did I do? Started a four day conference! Oh the life of a teacher!
While some of my work colleagues hit the beach, I opened a conference on Enrichment Opportunities with a 45 minute lesson from a citizenship unit.
Finally! Today I only need to work on writing from my home. I do not have to step back into my classroom for about 4 weeks! I can concentrate on the freelance writing jobs I have picked up for the summer and spend some much needed time with my two year old little boy and my husband. Perhaps I will even catch up on laundry this weekend, but I don't want to push it!
