DAY 27 Reflective Teacher Blogging Challenge
What role do weekends and holidays play in your teaching?
I wish I could say that on weekends and holidays I just relaxed and rested up for my work week. Ok, I don't know if I actually mean that. I'm not even sure that I would even know how to relax. My weekends are usually just as busy, if not more, than my work week. 28 Sundays a year I teach Italian to kids ages 4 and up. In between, you'll probably find me at the soccer fields (watching my sons), doing the food shopping, cleaning or a myriad of other errands. And in between all of this, I am constantly thinking of my teaching. I'll hear a song and think, "Oh, this is perfect for reviewing the imperfect tense." I'll scroll through the tweets and find a great article and have to print it out to share in class. I just can't seem to turn off my teacher brain. Everywhere I look, I find something I can bring into the classroom. For now, I guess it'll be ok, right? I'll save the rest and relaxation for retirement. Maybe.
