The "A" Word

I recently received an e-mail from a co-worker describing her amazing trip to Corona was her water, and that she was in such a remote area that her cell phone didn't get reception and most people around her didn't speak English.

In the midst of her light-hearted e-mail, while throwing out dates for exploring the best wine to drink with hot, gooey smores, she used the A word...the vile, angst ridden A word...August. She apologized for putting it out there, but nevertheless, she still did it.

Most people outside of field of education don't realize that August is like the Sunday night of the work week. August means the end of relaxation and the beginning of meetings, and forms, and setting up the classroom, and making alphabetized lists of your new students, and making a new birthday calendar, and writing your students' names on little popsicle sticks, and getting back into teaching mode.

Please don't ask a teacher when school starts. We know you mean well, but we don't' want to think about it.

Yet. : )
