Summer time is a great opportunity for teachers to rest and rejuvenate. We can lay aside the daily demands of the classroom, reflect on the past school year, and begin brainstorming for the year to come. I love summer break, but do miss being around my students.
However, this summer, I got the opportunity to have one of those truly heart-warming moments that I usually only experience in my classroom. You teachers know what I’m talking about -- those moments that make all the less pleasant ones fade away: When you see a student truly succeed or enjoy an exciting, first-time experience.
