Something about the 4th of July always makes my Teacher mode kick in.
I turn from lazy summer days, (ha,ha read Uber Mom post) to getting ready
for the next school year. You would think after 25 years in the classroom I
would not need to prepare much. You would think right! But each year I seem
to find that one or two things that I can improve on and so begins the July prepare
After many summers of this happening I have decided that this is how I gage if
I should stay in this profession. When the summer comes that I don't feel the need
to improve on something, that is probably my que to look into what I should be doing.
If I don't want to be there, I am not what the students need. Shame on the teacher
that is there doing no good for their students.
