Tomorrow is the last day of summer school. The past 3 weeks have gone pretty quickly. We have a "fun" day planned for tomorrow--a tradition at the site I'm at. The kids have been working hard and deserve a little less structure for the last day. There's been much discussion among the staff about whether or not we will teach summer school next year. At this point, I certainly wouldn't make a commitment, but would consider it. Now that I have done it once, I know what things I would do again and what I would do differently. When planning, I was very unrealistic in my expectations of what we would be able to accomplish. I probably covered half of what I had originally planned. My students also came up with some neat variations on assignments that I will certainly incorporate into my plans. I'll celebrate the start of my summer vacation by spending the weekend on my own as everyone else in my family is going their separate ways. Next week I'm taking my daughter to Niagara Falls shopping for a couple of days (a trip made possible by my summer school earnings!).
