Well, today was the final day of school (with children) for this year. It is a wonderful feeling to know that I don't "have" to get up for anything inparticular for 3 months. :) Now, the reality is I'll still be getting up and working. It's just nice to know I don't have to.
To say my class was a challenge this year would be an understatement. There were days when I thought I'd go crazy. There were days I really enjoyed too. The toughest thing was the lack of impact I feel I had on the kids. I spent so much time disciplining that I wasn't able to really connect with many kids. It was a very frustrating feeling, especially when so many kids need that.
Here's to the summer though. Hopefully, I'll be recharged and ready to go next year again.
