It's Summa Time!


Ok, so technically we still have a week and a half.  But, come on its 90 degrees outside!  (also, side note, I know I suck at blogging...it's possible I bit off more than I could chew with blogging, but it's like the friend you can call even after months of not talking and she still gets ya)  I was super excited about these last couple of weeks of school, because they are fun!  However, I got sick.  Super sick.  I actually had a fever sick.  I have had to miss the last two days of school which breaks my heart and causes me lots of anxiety, but fever free I am and returning to my windowless classroom tomorrow.

Next week we have a week full of fun planned...career day, beach day, game day, talent show, awards...fun, fun, fun!  I made it through our first year of common core, first year of homogeneous language arts grouping, first year of a windowless classroom, first year of grad school and HEY I'm done my second year of teaching.  Am I burnt out...yes.  Am I still going to teach summer school and keep taking grad classes through the summer...yes.  Ask me how this works out in the fall and if I will keep doing all this next summer.

I honestly have to say that I have enjoyed this group of kids immensely.  They are full of personality, humor, and WOW they are bright.  I will miss each of these kiddos a lot!  Because they are so awesome, and beyond amazing writers, I decided to give them my address and let them be my pen pal this summer.  Will I receive hate mail or random knocks at my door...highly possible. But the idea is super fun!

Here is what I'm sending home with them on the last day of school...

Congrats on finishing your 2 nd year! Don't worry about blogging. You will have plenty of time to catch up once school is out! I'm on my third, and final, summer working on my Master's. When school starts back, I will be done! You can do it if I can!
