Relaxing - yet busy

I'm not sure if busy is the right word for teachers going back to school.  More like "on hold", or "hurry-up-and-wait"....  You see, we have much to do to prepare for students, but we also have training to attend.  This is how we make sure we are up to date on the latest research, discuss methods that are proven to work (or proven not to!), and how we keep our licenses current.

My wonderful Principal who was introducing our presenter. 

While it is very important, it can also be very frustrating - because in the back of your mind (or in some cases, on the paper in front of you,) is a growing list of things that need to be accomplished before the students arrive!  The longer you sit in training, the longer the list grows...  The longer you sit in training, the less time is left to get everything finished!

However, this week, our training was very good and I truly did enjoy it.  Even so, my own list is growing!!

If you know a teacher who is going back to school, give them support in the next few weeks.  Let them know that you appreciate everything they do for all or our children.  They are training tomorrow!

Much Love,
