You may not guess who is ready to pop a wheelie off of campus. Better yet, according to most of our staff, it’s probably everyone that is ready to get the bus ‘outta here! Four more days until that day: School’s Out For Summer! Then it’s some serious R&R before all the exams and professional development hours have to be done by July. Grrrrrr.
Nonetheless, I do hope to post some over the next two and half months. I emphasize HOPE however. My summer is not exactly empty for frequent ‘adult times’…sadly. Don’t get me wrong, I do love my work; the challenges of Special Ed kids has its non-monotary rewards. There are five of my 27 SpecEd students that are nothing like they were when they first arrived. They are my poster-students, if you will, of success and works-in-progress. I am so VERY proud of them! Several others still have much work ahead of them, but show potential. My 8th graders gave me a nice funny compliment yesterday. They said that if they have to they “will fail 9th grade Social Studies just to get back in my class.” They put a big smile on my face.
This short update blog, however, is just to let friends know that my 60 – 70 hour work weeks and weekends will soon be over. I’m sure that I will be traveling between Dallas, Houston, and San Antonio to visit and ‘play, dance, and laugh’ (big grin). I will indeed see all of you soon!
