Teaching isn’t the easiest job in the world. It takes a lot of hard work and perseverance to get the job done. Some of my teacher friends have already begum summer vacation while some us are still going strong. I have 10 days left!
Over the summer many teachers take time out of their holiday to engage in professional development. Teachers just never stop learning so they can continue to grow and get better for their students! I have a stack of books that I plan on reading and I have some webinars I will be completing.
Are you engaging in any professional development over the summer? If so, what are you planning on doing? Or, are you planning on unplugging completely from your teacher life? That’s what I did last summer and it was the best thing for me. Don’t feel afraid of either option. Do what’s best for your teacher soul.
