My first year of teaching, at the end of April, I was told by a veteran teacher: beware of May. She didn’t explain why or what, she just said enjoy the rest of April because May isn’t easy.
Every year I have taught, I think of her and her warning. And while every year I do make it through May, it’s definitely rough.
This year I finished a professional development series. As the instructor, I had presentations, portfolios, and paperwork making me anxious the first two weeks of May, and then consuming all my time the last two weeks of May. On top of that, I presented my final education webinar, and I finished three large editing projects.
May is a month of celebrations, and deadlines. Culminating projects, and closing paperwork. It’s a big month in the world of education. So, I apologize for falling behind here, but I did make it to the other side so that’s something to celebrate, right? 😁
