The most rewarding aspect of teaching: summer vacation. O.K., that sounds like I hate my job, and I don't any more than anyone else, but summer is good. Even for the schoolkids. Sometimes a kid that struggles with immaturity will come back after summer break a little more mature. That is good.
Has anyone noticed that teachers get sick during breaks from school? I'm sweating with strep right now (day two of antibiotics, starting to feel better). Anyway, summer is here, and I'm looking forward to it. Bosslady is working summer school and I'm going to keep the children busy.
