So today is my last day of summer vacation.Â Sigh. It was great while it lasted.
I really love teaching; don’t get me wrong.Â But it’s hard to trade the leisurely pace of summer for the early morning alarm, the daily commute, the chronic grading.Â I don’t think this is just a teacher thing, either; if you have school-age kids, you are probably feeling the same way.
But I do have a few tips to make the transition less painful.Â You can find them in my latest column. I hope they help you make the start of the school year a good one for you & yours.
P.S.Â As predicted, it’s finally getting warm around here.
