I can't believe my last post was at the beginning of May. Well, I finally got through the end of the school year. The room is packed up, my paperwork is all done and I am HOME!!! The end of the year always has so many things to do, report cards, supply lists, ordering supplies for next year, collecting books, assessing fines for damaged or lost books, etc..........
Now I have a few weeks before I have to focus on next year. Yes, for all of you who think teachers get the summer off, you are wrong. We may not be in the classroom, but we are working on curriculum, taking classes and planning for the next year most of the summer. Some teachers add tutoring and summer school to that list also. I will be mentoring a student this summer who is taking a class through Duke University. I will meet with her once a week to help her stay on target and with any problems she may encounter. I absolutely love this young lady, she is gifted, beautiful, classy and just an all around lovely young lady, so this will be a joy for me. If I had had a daughter, I would have wanted her to be just like this young lady. It is not often you have students like this, maybe one or two in your whole career, so I feel blessed to have had her in my class.
I have several sewing projects on my list also. They will have to come in spurts though, because I am still battling the back pain. I have it down to about a 4 most of the time, but I don't want to push it and end up with it at the unmanageable level again. The drs. still haven't figured out what it is and why it is occurring, so it is still a bit frustrating for me.
I will post pictures of my in progress work as I move along. Thanks to all of you who still check out my blog. I promise to be better about posting this summer.
Happy June to all!!
