You Are So Lucky...

You are so lucky...you stop working at 3 PM...you get the whole summer off. I try not to get too annoyed when I hear those remarks from non-teachers. Most of the time, I just nod and shake my head. However, what I really want to tell those who make those comments is that I spend most of my summer reading, researching, and preparing for my next school year. I also took part in some staff development sessions. If I had more time,I would have taken some continuing education classes. But those who make the comments are right about one thing. I am lucky...for I see each September as a rebirth...a renewal..a chance to stimulate the minds of twenty more students. :-)
