T-Minus 10 and Counting

That's right. We have ten days of school left before we head into a little break known as summer vacation.

Of course, teachers' summers aren't as school-free as one might think when you factor in all the professional development and planning for the next year that is done. I can't complain, though, and it's even better since our district took our salary (which is based on 10 months) and redistributed it throughout all 12 months. I tell ya, long summer breaks are even longer (and not in a good way) when you have no money coming your way.

Anyway, I'm looking forward to the end. The bulk of my school year runs along smoothly and stress-free, but at this time of the year - well, chaos is the word that comes to mind.

Now, it's time for my chaos-filled head to hit the pillow - and I hope to goodness I don't dream about textbook counts, due dates, lost book fines, purchase orders, tutoring, Battle of the Book questions, zzzz zzzz zzzz

We have 11 days of school left. And then, due to the snow days, they are making the teachers do 5 more contract days after that. I may die....

We are counting down the days until summer too. Everyone here is sick, and all I can think of is when will summer be here?! Although I will miss my time alone, I look forward to days with no schedules! Good luck with all of your end of the year activities!

Hang in there, Chick. Don't die on us. LOL

Thanks, Heather. I am so ready for summer. Of course, by the end of it I am more than ready for school to start back, if for no other reason than to regain some peace from two children who bicker way too much with each other. :)
