Happy Summer Teachers!!!!

3 days left until I can do this:

sleep in late.

and this
My Poolside Pedicure

and this
Tennis

instead of this
The Boy's Class
and this
Tenzin Has A Tantrum

Can you sense my excitement?. I do love my profession on most days. But, I do have to vent about my year a little. I have way to many children, way to many IEP's and WAY to much paperwork. I actually feel like a secretary and not a teacher. I have never looked forward to summer so much in my entire life. I have encountered non-teacher's before who have said to me, "Why do you have so much vacation? I only get a week of vacation." I would like to remind the non-teachers out there that you can go re- apply to college and obtain your teaching certificate. I would also like to remind them that we make nothing.And get up at 5:00 am. Teachers deserve every minute of summer vacation. So, to all the teachers out there, HAPPY SUMMER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thank you for your sweet comment! I really enjoy your blog, since we are from the same place and everything is so familiar! I will let you know how things go with my wedding vendors so you will hopefully get some good recommendations on who to use!

I am sooo jealous! We're not done until the 12th (yes, North Carolina is run more by tourism than education...).

I'm excited for you :)

bless you and all us out there :) we are done the 12th.. wooohoooo NC.. i hear you about IEPs and paperwork.. and may i also add, few other professions have to deal with their job's PARENTS as much as we do.. and i just pray that no other teacher has had as many problems with parents, meddling parents, mean rude parents, unattentive neglectful parents as i have.. yay summer!!!
