Five things I never knew . . . until I became a teacher:
- spring makes the end of recess hard, really hard
- spring fever is real
- spring cleaning is necessary
- spring break cannot come soon enough
- spring break is very late in the year . . . whenever it is–it’s late in the year, trust me
For the most part, this year, spring break is in April; therefore, I must advise you:
Enjoy your spring break.
Take more than a day, or a weekend, away from work. Enjoy more than a weekend’s worth of time off.
No lesson planning, no grading, no time in the classroom–absolutely nothing work related–for as much time as possible during this break. Take an actual break.
You have earned this time off, you have earned this break, so please, please make sure to enjoy spring break.
Don’t mind me with my two coffees, a water, and a Diet Coke on my desk — a Sprite and Wheat Thins in the background — I’m super awake and ready for the day! 😆
