Totes how I feel right now. I love my students and I dig the vast majority of my job BUT there comes a time in the school year when we all just need a break from each other. Email is slowing down, office visits are dwindling, and evening meetings are done. I can bring to life Dolly Parton’s hit tune “9-5”. Oh, and if you haven’t watched that movie, you should, because it is hilarious.
Summer is calling and I’ve got some things to accomplish in May, June, and July. Let’s get these kids into finals, into the planes/trains/automobiles that will whisk them away to their summer destinations, and for the seniors into that god-awful polyester cap and gown that signals their transition into the “real world”.
We’ll take a little hiatus from each other (it’s not you; it’s me; but really it is you) and then we’ll do it all over again in fall 2012.
Cue M-I-C-K-E-Y M-O-U-S-E (the MMC version not the original oldie).
