It's true I do work endlessly in the summer for their success. But, that's not ALL I do...
I think the greatest part about teaching is colleagues that turn into friends. Not only do you have people to share great ideas with, you have people who understand why you do what you do each day. They share the end goal. For some reason when teachers turn into "teacherfriends" age, location, grade doesn't really matter.
Yesterday I got to have an amazing afternoon (that was worth my 2 hour drive from nowhere) with 3 such teacherfriends. All of my favorite things intertwined: sun, chicken salad, laughter, teaching, pool, yummy fruit "lemon aid", Sonic drinks. It was fabulous...so much so I'm ready to work again!
Here's the other great thing...it's gonna stay with me a while...both on my shoulders and my thighs!
