Well the countdown has begun and that's not a good thing! See when we (students and teachers) start the countdown we lose sight of the NOW...since we are so focused on the LATER (summer that is). Its a difficult time of year to teach because either the kids aren't "In it" or its hard to get yourself "in it". But the goal is to keep teaching all I can and continue trying to fill up their little brains with lots of good knowledge UNTIL summer arrives!
June 9th is the last day of my school year but 4 weeks from today I am done with course work. Tier 1 kids are done with school May 22nd and Tier 2 kids continue on until June 9th. Since I don't teach a core course I am done with exams on May 21st and will see my kids once more on May 22nd. I then move on to "other duties" on campus until June 9th. Its hard for me to believe that I am wrapping up my 12th year of teaching..I am not sure where the time has gone. I can only hope that my kids remember something positive from class and maybe, just maybe remember a few signs!!
Have a great weekend!
