For teachers, summer is here. I think many of us find ourselves at a loss for what exactly we should be doing this first week. I turned over my grades at 9:45am after cleaning the kitchen. I’m not doing any more housework today, but I have errands to run. It is disconcerting to have so little structure after 9 months of structure.
Still, I am not without tasks — organizing the office into a baby room, cleaning out teaching files, setting up new units for next year (even though I’ll only be in the classroom for a month), and a lot of knitting. 🙂
