The vacation was only a week but it seemed like a month, a good month of time to think and enjoy those I love.
Tomorrow it won't be long before the children's energy welcomes me back for the final leg of the school year.
It's been a positive teaching year, and a strong classroom community. Our grade-level team has done good work too, and the school has had many terrific whole school learning events.
There's lots to consider during the weeks and months ahead with regard to professional goals and forward movement. At this juncture in the road, I want to give myself the time to think about the busy professional years past and those to come. In the meantime, I'll attend to the work at hand.
