Excuse me, but it cannot possibly be the end of summer! I’m not sure how this happened so quickly. Are you sure I have to go back tomorrow?

I have not looked at any of my teacher files on the computer. I have not checked my curriculum map. I have not done any planning. I have not (and absolutely will not) walk through the doors of the school until I have to at 8 am (seriously?!) tomorrow morning. For a fleeting moment I felt like a bad teacher. Last year I didn’t go in early, but I did do a bunch of stuff at home in preparation. I thought about it some more and realized that I had my $hit together at the end of last year and it’s all organized in my closets at school. I have thought about what I am going to do those first few weeks, I just haven’t put it down on paper. It doesn’t take me that long to make bulletin boards, and I’d rather stay late the next two days than sacrifice one second of my summer freedom. I have spoken to some other colleagues and I’m not the only one taking this route this year. It’s my third year, and I still feel very new, but at least I have a much better idea of where I’m headed.

I am going to go back to bed and hope that when I wake up it is still mid-July.

    I’m proud of you not going in today- it’s bad enough we’re going to miss 2 beautiful days of weather trapped in mind-numbing boredom- why give up your vacation, too?

    If I go back to sleep too, can we make it July 1st?

    I hear you! I just went back on Monday and I still feel like if I just wish it hard enough, it will become mid-July again. I think you owe it to yourself to rest for every possible second!! Good for you!!

    Looking foward to your blog this year!

    Well, I for one am glad you’re back. Your blog is one of my favorite of all of them out there! Can’t wait to hear who your students are, what names you give them, etc..
