Ask any teacher this time of year and they will tell you why they are not writing in their blogs — or doing much else in their personal lives either.
- I am frantically grading all the last assignments so that I don’t have to pull all-nighters on the days before grades are due.
- I am cleaning, sorting, and packing up my room so that they can hold summer school classes in it practically before my heels cross the threshold.
- I am trying to keep order in a schoolroom full of rambunctious eighth graders who are SO DONE with middle school but still have more than two weeks left. It wears me out.
- I have retirement, celebration, end-of-year, and graduation events almost every night starting next week. (Somebody’s got to eat that food and drink that wine.)
