A month ago I was so tired and sick that I couldn't think, let alone plan for next year. For a few weeks I couldn't bring myself to even talk about next year. Fortunately, I'm feeling much better. I allowed myself most of the month of June to relax and think about anything but school. I feel relaxed and reenergized; ready to get started with my plans.
June activities (with bronchitis)
- Closet in new room cleaned out and organized with the help of a good friend
- Room packed and closed up for summer
- Old office cleaned and closed
- Interviewing and hiring of another 2nd grade teacher for our team
- 2nd grade team meeting
- A week of vacation
Today, our 2nd grade team took a road trip to Overland Park, Kansas to buy out, I mean visit some teacher stores. The drive up and back allowed for some nice discussion time. It was definitely a fun team-building activity. Setting up a new room after 10 years out of the classroom isn't cheap! I spent a larger chunk of money than I'm used to. I'm hoping to use these things for a few years!
