One Last Bite

This is my last jampacked week of the year. I had wall-to-wall meetings about various topics today...and I have full day meetings over the next four days. If I can just make it to Friday afternoon, I'm home free for the year. This is not to say that there won't be tasks a'plenty during the last week, but next Friday at noon, I walk away from Curriculum and haven't any plans to return before I absolutely have to do do.

Our official last day of work is a Monday: June 25. That will be my first day at my new school...the one where I am going to be an instructional coach next year. From what I'm hearing, a lot of people are not planning on coming. This has nothing to do with the fact that I'll be there. :) Rather, with the 6+ weather days this year, we're already getting out at a time when several people had already made travel reservations. As for others, I can well understand how unattractive it is to finish a school year with kids and mentally be done with things only to have to come back for a day of inservice. At this point, I'm very grateful that I don't have to present anything.

I've just gotta take this one last bite this week.

Shucks, I'm not even close to being tired. The school year has hardly begun and it's over!

Of course it helps if you are totally in charge of your own time and pace. :) But still, the increased velocity of time as one grows...more mature is sobering.

It was a great year for us down here in Hillsboro!
