So my summer is sailing away.
A few weeks ago, just thinking about fall made my stomach hurt. Now, not so much. But I do feel a bit of anxiety, as I haven’t even touched the lesson planning I brought home to work on, and I have tons left to do at home, and I have tons to do when I do go back to work. It’ll be more work than usual this year, because I have to prepare the classroom to share with the afternoon teacher, and will have to organize, purge, and remove tons of stuff to make room for her.
You teachers out there must be feeling the same way — how do you cope with the rapidly dwindling summer days?
And what about parents — how do you feel about getting ready for school and the rapid arrival of fall?
