While having summers off as a teacher is a excellent idea, there's always a sense of urgency that gets lost. Even now, I have a ton of ideas for making next year even better...yet I know by the time I show up in August I'll just be happy to keep the status quo going. It'd almost be better if we could just take a two week break and then jump right back into it. Then we wouldn't have the awkward "reset" time period when we all return. The transition is always one of the hardest points.
With that, there's just one more day until the class of 2015 is graduated. I'll have tomorrow's entry written just for them.
