Tomorrow is my last day of work till August. Since the school year started I have been counting down to this day and now it is upon me. There is so much going on the next 2 months jury duty, family vacations, play dates, and maybe a little grad school. I can't believe I am going to be able to do all of this in 2 months.
As I stood in my empty classroom today I found myself thinking about how things are different this year from last year. Last year I left my classroom thinking I wasn't coming back. I was convinced that I was going to be trying out a new career path. Needless to say that didn't work out and I am still teaching. In some ways I am glad this happened because over the last year I have rediscovered my love of teaching. After 3 years of infertility it is refreshing to be living my life again.
