Today I taught my last English class of this school year (not counting tutoring, which I’m still doing). We got the big vocabulary test out of the way first, and then the kids could load up on snacks and soft drinks before taking turns reading their stories out loud to the rest of us. It’s always so much fun hearing the different stories the kids think up even though they all have the same guidelines.
After class I did paperwork and ran a couple of errands and then sat down to start figuring out my summer and fall schedules. If I have enough interest in all the potential classes I’m offering, I am going to be a very busy lady. I used to try and keep July open for writing, but it won’t be possible this year. I’ll still try to write, but I’ll have a lot of other things going on too. I no longer look forward to summer, because it’s not really a “break” for me anymore. And it’s also really, really hot.
