A lot of teachers I know and work with — okay, pretty much all of them — often admit they need a week or two to decompress from the school year once summer break starts. Of course, summer is short, and most teachers have a lot of work to do over the summer (even if they aren’t teaching classes). I know this shatters a myth many people like to believe, that we spend a couple of months just doing nothing but draw a paycheck. (Trust me, in seventeen years of teaching, I’ve never encountered any teacher for whom that was actually true.)
Anyway, a week or two out of ten is an awful big chunk of time to spend decompressing. So sometimes, the first weekend of summer, you have to make a grand statement, metaphorically, to shock your system into understanding you really are on summer break.
And the other hand…
