Candid Teacher Admits: I can’t wait for summer!
I usually hold off as long as I can to begin the “count down” to the end of the school year. However, once I make it to June, I let myself indulge in calculating the number of days left of school. Since the last two days of school are half days and I plan to take some at least one day off to visit doctors while I still have insurance, I have less than 3 weeks left.
I am thrilled to the core!
Though I’m excited at the prospect of having a break, I’m also very nervous. I am the kind of person who enjoys having something to do nearly all the time. Knowing I have a break with nothing to return to in the fall makes me uneasy.
Where will I be? Will I have a job? Will I have to put my personal plans of moving into a new apartment on hold? Will I have to move back in with my parents? Will my students be okay in first grade? Have I done everything I can to ensure my students have the right foundation for success? Will I be able to get a job at all- whether teaching or otherwise?
So many questions are clouding my head. Many are about myself. Many others concern my students and their well-being. I know I can’t answer them all; nobody can. Still, I hope I will find some answers in the near future.
