Congratulations! You made it! It’s summer! This is your time for some much-deserved rest and time away from school. This summer when you think about the three R’s let it be rest, relax and recharge!
We all know that teaching will take every possible minute that you give it. When it comes to teaching, isn’t it true that you’re never done? Don’t you have huge lists, on paper or in your head, of all kinds of things you could do? We bet you could spend every day of your entire summer working in your classroom and still have a long list of things to do. Don’t do it! Instead, invest time this summer in taking care of yourself. You’ll be glad you did!
