Educators do have a nice amount of breaks throughout the year, but none as wonderful as summer break – maybe not for the reason you think.
Hopefully, over the summer, you enjoyed some time to reflect and prepare for the school year ahead of you. Summer break is the period in the year where you are not concerned about “your (20-150) kids” in quite the same way. It is a break in owning a classroom full of students and a chance to direct your focus inward at yourself as an educator. Thank you to Jolene, Mickey, Mary, Theodora, Cindy, John, Sheri, and Lisa who all participated in this inguagural #8weeksofsummer blog challenge for teachers. I hope to read your contributions again next summer and include even more educators!
