Summer Plans

Every year at the start of summer I make plans. I'm only a week and three days into summer and already my plans of going out the window. Had a few more things to finish up at school last week which I did happily. Then just other little things of gotten the way like appointments that I needed to go to. And then this past weekend I got the flu. I couldn't believe that I waited until summer to get sick. I hadn't been sick all school year, but I waited until summer. The only silver lining was I didn't have to write lesson plans. I could just be sick.

Since I'm not going on a big trip this year, I have lots of plans. I hope that I'm going to be able to follow through. First and foremost I'm going to be reading. I've got the #Summerthrowdown coming up in July and I've got a lot of reading to do for Maryland Black-Eyed Susan Award nominees. There some great books on that list of nominees and I'm excited to read them. Click here to see the list of nominees. Once to this page, click on the drop down menu for the Black-Eyed Susan Awards. Then you can pick picture books, 4-6, 6-9, high school, and graphic novel.

I've got a lot to do around my house. There are always closets to go through, drawers to go through and not to mention the work outside. I also have some school work to do as well. Once again I am a demonstration teacher for our new Media Specialists in the county and I'm also a mentor to the new Media Specialists as well. So I have lesson plans but I need to update and I'm trying to put together a handbook of helpful hints and tips for our new Media people. I love being a demonstration teacher and mentor because I am so enthusiastic about my job I want everyone to love it as much as I do.

What are your plans for the summer?

Happy Reading!!
