I tried to resist, but I just couldn’t. I went to my classroom today to tidy up a bit and get ready for Monday. I told myself two weeks ago that I wasn’t going to come back to my room once I left for break, but I didn’t listen. I feel great, though. I spent a few hours organizing my desk and computer area. I organized a few files that I meant to get to. I even managed to dust my room a bit. It’s amazing how dusty things can get. I felt a sense of accomplishment when I left my classroom today. When I return on Monday there won’t be as much clutter to greet me. That makes me happy.
Although I enjoyed my two weeks off, I am excited to get back to my students. I feel refreshed and energized. I hope the students feel the same way, too. Also, I just found out that I will also be getting a student teacher. She starts on Monday. There will be a whole lot of learning going on in my room next week. I can’t wait! 🙂
