Summertime Blues...

Why does summer come with such mixed emotions?

I will readily admit, I'm ready for a break. However, I will miss these kids tremendously & am always glad to see them once school starts. But then wasn't it I who was counting the days until summer?

It's a weird feeling. It's like I don't know what to do with myself. Although, my summer job will help- it's not the same.

This post is so true. Do you think it is like when you visit with a truly good friend and you know it must end? That intimacy that you feel with your students has to break up but it's not like a relationship is broken. You know deep in your heart that the next teacher that receives these children will not get to know them like you did or respect them for all their idiosyncracies (sp?). (I know my other fellow teachers are wonderful, but our bond is tight!)
I feel your pain Sarah.
