6+ hours on my formal observation documents and I still have 2/3 left to go. Then I have to do it all over again for the post-observation.
Sorry kids, I’m not planning stuff for you right now because I have to cover my own ass.
I can’t even. I’m so sorry.
Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle… and where do you live so we can add to it?
We love visiting people while travelling!
New York? Maybe Colorado? Cleveland? I don’t know! Where are some central places, especially!
Obviously you should come to Minnesota in like March….be a new experience for you ;-)
Come to Jersey! We can take the train up to NYC and see Ms. Leah too. :)
(Ps. The real Jersey shore is nothing like the tv show. Don’t let Snooki fool you.)
Colorado is simply a must.
Well yes, obviously Colorado. ;)
And so we come to the famed part of break where I lament the to do list items that have not been accomplished (it sure feels like all of them), and begin to regret spending so much time doing “nothing” instead of all the somethings that I meant to do…
On the other hand, is this not how every weekend/long weekend/break turns out to feel as the final day approaches? Has the world ever stopped turning because I didn’t do the things I was planning to do? Nope. So for now, I shall do what I feel like getting done and try to get a bare bones plan for the week. Anything beyond that will just be a happy bonus!
For those of you who have been on break and about to see it come to a close, take heart in the relatively short amount of time from now until winter break. If/when the regret, guilt, and anxiety try to creep in think back to 1 or 2 beautiful moments of break and think ahead to 1 or 2 student faces who will not care how much planning you did but will instead be happy to see a refreshed teacher standing before them with a smile and a welcome back hug or high five.
Do you make your own crust?
Sometimes I make my own, sometimes I buy a box mix and go that route, and sometimes (like this one) I use Pillsbury pre-made from the refrigerated section. Just depends on my mood. I didn’t feel like hassling with the rolling pin and flour explosion all over the kitchen so I went the easy route this time. ;)
