Oh and did I mention I had to pack up my entire classroom and move it to the opposite end of the building? I am officially going to be teaching kindergarten next year (after being in 3rd grade for 3 years) and while I am very excited about the change the kindergarten hall is about as far from my old room as possible so it was a bit of a task to pack up my things and get them moved down there. I definitely got my workout in on those days!
After all of this business summer break officially began and I could not be more excited. I was very ready for the much needed rest and have already really enjoyed my time off. I decided that this summer I was going to be intentional about relaxing and resting. Having to plan out relaxing may seem silly and frankly counterproductive but for me I have to remind myself that it's ok to just relax and rest.
So the month of June? No school work. No prepping for next year. No classroom crafts. I'm even avoiding the education section of pinterest.
|Seriously- this is a thing and is not going to part of my relaxation routine.|
Teaching is a tough profession. It is tough physically, mentally and emotionally so the summer is an important time to rest and renew so that I will be ready for those sweet little faces that will greet me in August.
Now accepting book recommendations in the comments :)
