The school year is coming to a close, and about three weeks ago my principal asked me to teach a new class this year. And it’s not Language Arts OR Reading OR any combination thereof. I was shocked and amazed–and honored and appreciative.
This has been a year in which I have grown and stretched and learned as a teacher. And now, that will continue next year as well. I keep on telling my kids that you will have to learn ALL of your life.
In the mean time, I am ready for summer. I am ready to go through photographs (like the one above) and tell their stories. This one was from October, 2012 when Tony surprised me with a trip to Round Top–which is a big antiques fair nearby. It was all his own idea and it was a wonderful trip.
Hopefully this new page I’m turning at work will give me a little more room to breathe–but even if it doesn’t, summer vacation is on the way and the year ahead is going to be full of endings and beginnings. I need a nice, long break before we begin.
