Today I go back to work to begin my 21st year as a 7th grade teacher. I’ve had a wonderful two month break and now it’s time to go back to the salt mine to earn my keep. I look forward to seeing my teacher friends that I’ve not seen all summer and to seeing my students from last year when we host an open house on Thursday. I don’t look forward to standing all day on concrete nor to talking all day. It’s also going to be tough to get used to the noise of middle schoolers; I’ve relished the peace and quiet of my home this summer.
For those of you still in summer mode, enjoy every second of it. Even though it’s still summer and there’s plenty of fun left to be had, I can’t help but feel that today marks the end of summer for me. Boo-hoo!
Enjoy your Monday!
