my lame "ode to summer"

2 weeks until I go back to work. 

*sniff, sniff*

Summer is quickly fading away.

If I was poetic I could write a poem.  I would call it "Ode to Summer".  Original, no?

I had my first school-mare in 5 years last night.  For those of you who don't know...those are nightmares that teachers have about school.  Hence, school-mare. 

I dreamed that I was taking over a class midyear and my very first day was parent conferences.  I had never seen my kids, didn't even have a room yet, and the first parent didn't speak English...she spoke Chinese.

Oh Dayna,
I haven't had schoolmare yet this summer - I wonder if that is a good sign or a bad sign. Enjoy your last two weeks and remember you will be out way before me!!!

I think it's funny that teachers really dread it more than students! haha! I have a lot of teacher friends and they always keep a better count down then their students. Too funny!

Hopefully you don't have anymore school-mares!

Hey, my first year teaching in Lordsburg I really did have parents who spoke Chinese. The father also spoke English but not the mom. Thet were wonderful parents.
