I started this post as a mini rant about how teachers don’t really have the summer off and we aren’t paid for it and we struggle to come back to increasing demands and decreasing reward. But I deleted that. It’s all true, but it’s not what today and tomorrow are about.
There are two days left of my summer and I am going to make them actual summer days. Doing what I want outside in my garden as long as I can stand it. Working on my novel because I love it and I am an author, after all. Maybe even a trip to the neighborhood pool with my little one. Absolutely no school work. None. Enough of my summer “break” has been spent doing that. Today and tomorrow are all mine.
Will it cure the End of Summer Blues? Nope. Not a chance. But that’s ok.
Teachers, you’re incredible. Teacher spouses, so are you. Don’t let anyone make you feel differently. Take time for yourself so that you can shine.
Here’s a little bee-hind to make you smile today.
