N is for...No School Days!

Hey y'all!  It's Sarah Cooley from First Last!  Happy Thanksgiving sweet teacher friends!

All of us work so hard throughout the year.  Many of us get to school before the bell, and leave when the parking lot is dark.  We go home to our families, but we still don’t leave our jobs at the door.  We cut out things all night, laminate, create activities, and even shop with our classrooms and students in mind. Our students become a part of us.  Teaching is a part of us. 

But today is a day to be thankful for those "no school" days.  Even though we never really leave our jobs behind, remember to take advantage of this well deserved break—they don’t come often enough!  Relax, enjoy your families, and EAT.  Y’all, get those fat pants on, and don’t even worry about it.  Enjoy this day, and the rest of your week of no school days.  Take time to do what you want to do.  Don’t work on school stuff.  It will still be there next week! 

Happy Thanksgiving!  Many blessings to you and your family.

  1. You should wrote my life story above. I do agree that we need those "no school" days to recharge and take a break although our work is never quite done. I'm always laminating or creating a SMARTfile or fixing a test or something... but taking a breather is nice.

    Thanks for the reminder to take a break.
    Have a fabulous Thanksgiving,
