"Out for summer,
Out till fall,
We might not go back at all ..."
DAY 249: Thus ends my 26th year of teaching ... today was the last day of work and the last day of the 2009-2010 school year! It's been a decent year, certainly MUCH better than 2008-2009, which was really quite terrible due primarily to teaching BOTH AP Calculus and AP Biology and a lot of rocky personal stuff. Even this year STARTED a little rough with some unexpected heartbreak and a very trying and frustrating theatre project (though that one turned out fine once we got into performance).
What a difference a year makes, though. A rather satisfying school year all-in-all, with a manageable teaching schedule (with NO AP classes), a focus on self-improvement, gratitude, awareness, and contentment with my "singledom," and a number of enjoyable and fulfilling theatre projects to add balance to my work life.
