I'm coming home on Saturday!!! Tuesday was our last day of classes, and yesterday was a work day for the teachers. I am all finished with my plans, classroom decorations, and grading so I am going home work free which I am thrilled about. On Tusday was our Christmas presentation with the kids. I remember as a kid I loved doing the presentations for my school and my parents. We got to miss class and play and I loved it. But as a teacher it is a nightmare!!! We missed so much class and because the other 5th grade teachers were the piano player and the MC, I was in a room by myself with 67 5th graders. Just picture it for a minute. Total chaos. But its over, and when the kids performed it was incredible, and I was really glad we spent the amount of time practicing that we did.
I get to spend these next few days just being with friends and enoying a slower paced life style. It'll be a nice change of pace from the busy, always on the go schedule that I usually have. And then I'm home on Saturday :)
