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 Joy, Melissa, Sheri, Peter, Amber, Tracy, Theodora, Angela, Kristen, Denise, Susan, Eva, Gregory, George, Farley, and Kelly! All the participants in the second annual #8weeksofsummer blog challenge for teachers added to our knowledge and understanding of our unique craft. I hope to read your contributions again next summer and include even more educators!
