|summer break face|
teachers, what are you doing to take care of yourselves this summer?
i hope not taking on a summer job.
i'm sure a lot of you must find extra income, and that sucks for us, for the united states of america, and for our students. in case you didn't know!
i hope somewhere in between cleaning and prepping classrooms, curriculum, and your houses, and maybe sleeping in a bit, you're finding time to be well and refresh yourselves.
i wrote this blog post on staying creative outside of school for students on summer break a couple of years ago for the alliance for young writers and artists blog, & i think it applies equally well to teachers--maybe even more so!
here's some creative collaboration i'm doing this summer:
