Like my American counterparts, I too will be hard at work this summer. After a short vacation with my family ( do teachers even have families of their own!?), I will be purging things from my classroom and organizing it for next year - with my children in tow. I will be hard at work trying to rearrange my long-range plans so that they include as many of the newest and latest research-based techniques as I can accommodate in one year, in a way that gives me the most bang for my buck while cramming in as many of the curriculum expectations I must teach in all subjects. Don't get me wrong, I love my job, but the time we get "off" in the summer is not time spent idle. I like to look at it as the refreshing calm before another storm ;)
