Teachers have a hard job: we have to be energetic, organized, creative and available. Getting an extra day off to slow down and recuperate is the medicine that lets us keep going! Since I usually spend part of my normal weekend doing lesson plans, getting this one extra day lets me play just a little bit longer. I get one more day to sleep in or clean the house or read my book or catch up on my tv shows or all of the above!
I am so thankful for the time off because this extra day will refresh and energize me for the week ahead. My plans will be organized, I will be prepared, and my students will reap the benefits of a happy, well-rested teacher!
So off I go, to read, watch tv, walk the dogs and vacuum the living room! I sign off as I started...Thank you, Mr. Presidents!!
