It's what real educators do in the Summer Months. Even when I am eating watermelon and watching children splash in the pool, my mind is never far away from the next school year. Lesson plans and ideas marinate in my mind like the drenched meat waiting to be cooked on a backyard grill. And in August, "heat" will be added via district, state and school mandates, visions, and missions and a new year will begin to sizzle around us.
I LOVE this time of year...it's filled with sweet anticipation...a new zeal...and a faith that we can, and will, make a difference in the lives of children...I can taste it. Can you?
Happy June and July!!
