What a school year! I was absent way too much. The last time I missed this much school was seven years ago when my last child was born. I took six weeks of paternity leave and after two weeks, my wife was ready for me to go back to school!
This year, I survived a detached retina, a dog biting one son and it becoming infected, another son needing stitches, and a few bouts of illness in the family. I guess I could use a change. I would say break, but with the way the year has been, it would be a poor choice of a word…
What will I do this summer? I am taking two classes, teaching an intervention class for the reading section of the OGT, working on the changes to our curriculum, and volunteering as an assistant coach with a local swim team. Plus, I want to write more. Last summer I started out blogging everyday. As the school year progressed, I had to reduce it to twice a week. Then, in the spring it became once a week. I would like to be consistent with twice a week.
What are your goals for the summer?
