Fashion Friday 6/14/13

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.

This gets the point across nicely.
