Is Summer Over?!

I don't know about you, but I am still in the need for MORE SUMMER! I love the chance that we get to recharge before the hustle and bustle of a new year begins.

This summer I had the opportunity to spend time with family in the beautiful mountains of North Carolina as well as travel to see my family in the California. I feel truly blessed to have had the chance to disconnect from reality and remind myself of what is really important.

I even had the chance to spend time talking to other teachers about best practices in teaching. It seems we never get the time to really talk to each other once the busy year begins. All of these women teach different grade levels than I do. Although there were many similar stories, it was eye-opening to hear about specific grade level issues and concerns. What a valuable conversation this was!

So as the summer winds down, I am left with feeling like I need just a little bit more...
How about you? How did you recharge? Do you give yourself a break or have you already begun to jump into the next year? A little advice, give yourself a break every now and then. The importance of this career is huge. We can only be our best when we have given ourselves the best. Here's to the last few days of summer before we start to really dig in!
