Who else is with me and doesn't give a hoot about getting your room ready for next year, looking over plans, thinking ahead about what you want to do and the list goes on? All I care about right now is being OUT of school and summer being here! Bring on the beach, the pool and my beautiful, beautiful bed! I'll start thinking about school the day before pre-planning, or....maybe not till the day of!

Me! I keep my summer all to myself. I will not plan or do anything until we are required to be back to school in the fall. My time to relax with friends and family is too precious!

As grateful as I am to have a job, I could care less about preparing my classroom. School is so far from my mind.

It aggravates me to walk into a store and see Back to School items displayed this early. Let educators have the full month of June, please!

Not a care in the world

I have not a care in the world at the moment.

After 6.5 years I decided to give up my position as a colorguard instructor. I feel free for the first time in a long time and have the summer to myself.

As for a classroom, I hope to move to a different grade level and I'm awaiting an email about it, but won't hear until July.

So I'm just enjoying the pools, my niece & nephews, reading and relaxing.

I'm not ready to think of school yet. I've been out for a little over 2 weeks, feels like forever, but then not long enough.

Ugh.
Last Friday was our last day of kiddos.
Monday was our clean-up, finish up day.
Just because we are so lucky, T,W, Th are mandatory inservice days.
Friday is summer school set-up. For 16 days.
I just want one freaking day off.
Whine over.

Right! I have a new teammate that wants to come in and talk about next year. I tried to give him the hint that whatever it is, can wait until August, but he insists on meeting. Ugh...I'm teaching summer school..I would like to leave ASAP. Not stay after and chat about next year.

This is the first summer that I did not bring home any of the text books or teacher guides for planning! I'm switching grades and rooms, but I figured that the stack of books would just be in the way and I deserve a summer off!! There's always the night before school starts, right?

I have a ton of things to do and a lot on my mind for next year, BUT I'm enjoying these first few days of summer unemployment!!!

This week is my week of lounging around, next week is VBS week, the following week my teen has a week at a college art camp where I need to take him and pick him up.

My goal is to get to July 1st and begin worrying about the classroom. I'm moving and my new room isn't even ready for my stuff; hopefully by then, I'll get my stuff moved in and slowly begin the unpacking and set up process. But for now, I'm enjoying a week off with the kids.

I'm still working!!! I have 12 days left!! It feels like it will never come to an end.

Over the summer, I will NOT be planning my room- maybe I'll start around late August. I am going to the beach, sleeping in, shopping, going to the movies and to the park with DS.

We don't get out till the 25th, and I'm counting the days. We've had days of rain and cool temps, but I am lookng forward to getting to the pool and wearing my new bathing suits. My friend and I did look at the science for the first month of school to get the labs run off, but I just want to relax, read some good books, and start training for my next race. We also have no contract and have had new regulations from the town fire deparment regarding what can be displayed/hung inside and outside the classroom, so we're going to be limited in what projects and anchor charts can go up in the room. No point in getting too excited about decorating the room when the limits are pretty stringent. We are also getting monitored by the state, which further adds to the mix. Bring on summer freedom!

I've been out a month, and the closest I've gotten to thinking about school has been picking up stuff to make a new set of hall passes.

Last year I had a short vacation--maybe 3 weeks without anything school-related going on, and only 6 weeks total. This year I have 12 weeks, and I'm avoiding it as long as possible. I'll go in the week before school begins. We don't have any pre-planning days, so I have to get it all set up on my own time.

I've been back to teaching for five yrs now and this is the first year that I am determined to enjoy my summer and not plan or work on anything school related until at least the middle of July. So far, so good! I'm cleaning, and organizing my house, reading frivolous books, playing games with the kids, and enjoying the freedom!!! I'm having so much fun, I might even wait until August.

I have been off work for 3 weeks now and have done NOTHING to prepare for August. We have a lot of changes coming up but I'm due with my 2nd daughter not too long after school starts so I am looking forward to having almost two summers (maternity leave) this year. I had a rough year last year and am taking the summer to enjoy my daughter before our family changes soon!

Me!! I am thinking about collecting textbooks, the final exam, getting my grades in and I started packing up a few odds and ends yesterday!

On June 23rd, however, I will have your attitude. And it will last me through Labor Day!
