"The biggest happiness is when at the end of the year you feel better than at the beginning." Henry David Thoreau
The School Year Doesn’t “Wind Down”!
There is nothing “winding down” about the end of the school year. It is more like a complete and total crash. You accelerate until you run into a brick wall and you hope your seatbelt lets you get out of the thing intact so you can limp off to your summer.
You’re Going to Make This
If you’re a new teacher and you’ve never experienced this side of the “end of school” – the jolting, nerve wracking, exhausting, ridiculous side of “ending” school – then it is OK. You’ll make it. It is one of the toughest most taxing things you’ll experience.
Hold On, Hang On, Yell For Joy In the Wind
Be noble. Work hard. Keep your commitment to excellence. It is never OK to go on autopilot. These kids can watch movies all summer – don’t give into the temptation to be sorry – you’ve still got things to do. Teach until the last day. Find your beautiful moment every week. Finish well. Do incredible things. Be epic. Never settle. We get one chance at this life and everything we do in the classroom is important. Have fun but have fun with purpose. Be intentional about everything. Make memories. These are hard times but they are sweet times.
We Are One
Pull each other forward, friends. We’re going to need each other in the coming days. For we can’t expect the world out there to know what this is like, but we should expect support, encouragement and a magnetic pull of excellence from colleagues to finish this year in awesome ways. Live it. Be it. Be noble. We’re in an important profession. Teach on till the last day. Let’s rock!
