This pictured was taken a few years ago and I still laugh every time I see it. I wanted a skeleton for a body unit, there was only one available in the entire school. I asked to borrow it and this is how it was delivered to me. I think my sentiments were perfectly captured in this picture.
Spring fever is defined as: restlessness and excitement associated with the start of spring. It is further defined, and known as mood, emotional, and behavioral changes that result from the arrival of spring.
With record breaking cold and rains, with a polar vortex that made parts of the US colder than Antarctica, with my own sentiments that winter weather has lasted much too long, I most assuredly anticipate spring fever.
There’s nothing I can offer to help alleviate concerns, or ward off this illness, my advice is only to remind you, or tell you, that it exists.
Spring fever is real: either you will feel it, or your students will feel it, or your co-workers will!
Whoever catches it, just be kind–this too shall pass . . .
