My sister- in- law, a kindergarten teacher, posted this clever and oh- so- true quote several weeks ago…
"Teachers are solar powered. They recharge in the summer."
Summer can work wonders. We garden, ride bikes, sleep, hang out with our kids, and…. we work. I think that the most important work that teachers do in the summer (especially late summer) is reflect. What were the successes? The failures? How can I get better? What do I want to try this year?
And now, alas, summer’s almost gone.
