    I have almost 2 months left so my count down has not started. I still have some major units I need to cover. Plus, I enjoy the winding down with my students. Things are somewhat more relaxed.

    I have less than 20 days left. I haven't been counting because I love my kids this year and don't want it to be over!

    We have a countdown going on our door. 15 school days. Makes me sad. I've got an awesome group of kids and hate to see them go.

    I think that would be a difficult side of teaching. You get a group of kids and build a relationship with them, where they trust you and look up to you. Then the end of the year comes and you must say goodbye to them. I think that would be the hardest part of teaching for me.

    We go until the end of June. But the seniors leave in 3 weeks, which means I'll only have 3 classes a day after they leave!

    The kids have 24 days, and we have 25. The end of the year always comes at me in such a blur that I hardly realize it's happening! Then suddenly, the kids are gone, GRADUATED, and you realize it's over. It's always a little sad, but I love the fresh start each August brings. :)

    19 school days, with at least 3 of those taken up by all-day events. Hoping to squeeze in a half-day field trip, if we can work around some scheduling issues. Judging by how last week went, it might be a long month...

    20 days with students, 23 for me.

    1 field trip day, 1 field day day, 5 days of testing for the freshman which will take up the whole morning, 3 days of field testing for the sophomores, 2 early release days for exams and the rest of the year will fly by!

    29 student days, 32 teacher days.

    I am super jealous of most of you.

    And, I am not sure why we have 3 teacher work days at the end this year. We have had exactly TWO during the year- I wish we could have put it somewhere in the year!
    Since my kiddos move on to middle school, my cumulative folders have to be done by noon on the last student day. So, I usually twiddle my thumbs for two days. This year, I guess I will be twiddling them for three! (Unless I get a new job, then I will packing up and maybe even taking sick days since I have about 30 of them that I will lose)

    Yup! Especially when we only had one in October and one in January! They are replacing the flooring in my room, so even if I don't change schools, I have to pack my stuff up. Still, it won't take me three days!

    27 Days! I didn't realize we were already into the twenties. o_O;

    I am kind of going into this summer a little bummed though because I was looking forward to this research intern opportunity at some really amazing national labs, and I still haven't heard back from them.

    It could be just the pace of bureaucracy, but they were supposed to have gotten back to us by the end of April, and the end is nigh. *sigh*

    25 and a half school days left. We do have some play days in there, so not all of them are full teaching days. Although, with my student teacher teaching 2 periods now, I already have it pretty easy in terms of teaching time per day.

    I look forward to summer so that I can stay home with my little ones and soak up the mommy time! :love:
