AAAHH! State testing is now behind us! Hallelujah!

It is the week that teachers look like this:

 And yes, my students think this:

HAHA. They get a grade every day for the rest of the year. 7th Grade Boot Camp begins with book clubs and amped up writing projects. They think I’m lying when I tell them next year will be hard. Ahhh.

I’m already starting to plan for next year, rearranging some things and adding new things that we can now cover because someone somewhere finally got smart and moved our state testing to the end of May. I’m hoping next year is much more streamlined.

That thing I was excited to share with y’all a while back but couldn’t yet…well, it fell through.

    • Oh, Katherine, I have mentally finished school, too. It’s not just the kids. It wasn’t like this last year, but this year for whatever reason, I am ready for June 4th! Although, our last six weeks is always great work that allows me a lot of freedom to work with small groups – hurrah for book clubs!

  1. Enjoy the last days of school, although I know you will be busily preparing all through the summer…and you might even be teaching during the summer…

    Once upon a time, I thought about becoming a teacher and was inches from the credential…and then moved to a place where I had to stop my work on it. Luckily, I decided to get my MA instead and started working with children individually and in small groups (social work). That suited me more…but I always wanted those summers off…sigh.


    • Oh, yes, we are definitely preparing for summer and next year already. Summers off, though, are not what most think, at least not today. We get sent to multiple trainings (usually 2-4 days at a time), and if you want your room ready and your first six weeks’ of assignments back from the copy center, we are working through the summer! …and all those doctor and dentist and eye appointments you can’t get to in the school year! haha

      It’s good that you continued to pursue something you wanted, even if you changed directions slightly. Working with kids can be so rewarding.
