There are 13 more school days left, and yes, I am counting down. I have loved my first year teaching and all the ups and downs that went along with it.
But I am done.
I am burned out.
I am struggling to come up with new lessons and ideas even though I still have 13 days of teaching left. But 13 days is a lot! We can get a lot done in 13 days! There is lots of learning to be done in 13 days! (Do you see I am trying to psyche myself up?!)
It's not working.
At least I have the Kindergarten picnic and Field Day to chop 2 of those days off. So I really have 11 days. And actually, 3 of those days are our half day Mondays so I guess I have 10 1/2 days left.
I can deal with 10 1/2. I can make 10 1/2 days of learning! It will be fun! It will be exciting! We can do it! We will do it! Ra ra sis boom ba!
