It’s the most wonderful time of the year…(not)

Classes are done.

Warm sunny days are here.

Ice Cream truck is rolling around.

Kids are studying.

Teachers are drowning.

Yes – I am drowning. Drowning in PAPERS!

Final projects….can’t wait for the exams, you can triple that pile!

I just received final projects from my 5 geography classes and had quite the workout lugging them home to mark.

Pretty sure that my breaks, in between marking lovely research projects, will consist of me dreaming about my summer plans. And I am pretty sure that it will be the theme of my posts for the next few weeks.

Come onnnnn summer!!!!!

Weather Win for March Break

I’m off this week, as being a teacher allows me to enjoy a nice two week long break this month.

Love it!

Also, what I love is the forecast this week. It went from -4 last week to this:

How did you know I would be on vacation, Mother Nature? Thank you!

Nevermind the isolated showers…at least it’s not socked in for the day.

Jaw dropper….if only I wasn’t a teacher

Oh yes – we have summers off, our students are inspiring, we absolutely love our task of inspiring boys… But look at the DEALS you get when you can book vacation off at any time of the year!!!!
