Whew! I Made It!

The end of the school year evokes several emotions. 

  • There is frenzy as you enter all test results, grades, and anything else that comes in a 'things to do before the end of school' email.
  • There is panic as you frantically try to put everything in its place so that your room can be cleaned properly.
  • There is exasperation as you try to fill your last days with educational fun that will tame your excited little munchkins.
  • There is sadness as you promote your charges to the next grade. You have all become a family, and now your journey together has come to an end. It's amazing how close you get~I'm sure you've referred to your class as 'my kids,' right?
  • There is excitement as you think of all the things you will accomplish over the summer . . . read a few books, go on vacation, sleep in, clean out the basement, . . . and the list goes on and on.
  • There is anticipation as you enter Target or the Dollar Tree in search of goodies for your next class. We all know how quickly the next year comes around!
I know it's hard to be a teacher these days and many people (politicians) don't seem to appreciate all we do . . . but these emotions are part of the roller coaster of a teacher's life and actually help make the ride a little smoother! I choose to ride the roller coaster and experience the love and emotion that comes with being a teacher. How about you? 

Have a wonderful summer everyone!
