When you say "another year gone by" most people are saying this in January, but teachers (like their students) count years from September to June. Those months between June and September are special months filled with the excitement of not being bound to an alarm clock, filled with late lunches, and leisurely mornings. It's getting to be the end of another year, some schools are already out, and some of us are down to the wire counting the days left.
This past school year was a successful one! My students were funny and entertaining, they worked hard when they needed to, and knew when to have fun. We learned how to solve Rubik's cubes, some with more success then others. We can all solve basic algebra equations. And we all got to enjoy a few days in Quebec.
There are all sorts of ways to know when the end of the school years is coming. Sometimes your students even go out of their way and get you a gift, and this year I have to say I think I got the best gift ever. Check it out!
