Anyone taken a sabbatical?

Hello,

I teach Middle School ELA and I am considering a sabbatical next year. I'm interested in hearing from any teacher who has done so. Specifically,

-what kinds of projects or classes did you take?
-what did you present to the school, or tie in to classes?
-did you travel or teach abroad?

Thanks!

I have not taken one myself, but I have worked with two people who have.

One took a year off to finish PhD work. The other took a year off to teach overseas.

Both returned to their original schools, but neither returned to their original classrooms or positions. Both were very happy with their leaves.

I took a sabbatical for 1 yr to teach abroad. After the first year, it was so awesome I took another year. Then, I resigned and never went back. I've been abroad 6 yrs now And, I was teaching the same thing as you- middle school ELA. I took my son with me and he has since graduated from high school and is in his 2nd yr in university in the US. I will probably remain abroad another 2 yrs or so and then repat.
