This past Saturday I had the opportunity to spend a day with other blogging teachers. It was the second annual Red Stick Teacher Round Up. Have you ever been to one? So much enthusiasm after school hours was inspiring. I have taught K for 22 years and summer is usually dedicated to putting work out of the mind. The last few years I find myself enjoying time preparing for the upcoming school year. It was good to see so many young teachers who are so motivated to prepare our little ones( of all ages) for a GREAT year of learning. This was exactly what I needed to remind me I'm not the nut for thinking "school" on my off time. It's a GREAT hobby. What are you doing with your summer?
