i am suffering from a disease. those of you who have gone through school might know this particular disease as "senioritis." those of you who have gone on missions might know it as "trunky." i, however, am a teacher...who is beyond ready for school to be out for summer. and since i am "retiring" from teaching, it's even worse. i am but a few workdays away from an everlasting summer vacation.
i have the worse case of teacheritis. EVER.
and while the last few weeks of school are nice because you can see the light at the end of the tunnel, they are also torture. summer is so close, yet so far away. the kids are antsy. a few have finished all of their work and have nothing to do. many don't care about finishing their work and do nothing. some kids are scrambling to overcome months of procrastination and their brains have nothing left. they are longing for summer. little do they know their teachers are pining for it.
oh sweet summer. how i long for thy warm caress and leisurely days!
