How to survive the last two weeks of school:

  • Smile and nod.
  • Take deep breaths.
  • Restock your chocolate supply.
  • Wear jeans every day.
  • Drink coffee every morning.
  • Drink wine every night.
  • Take more deep breaths.
  • Make it through field day without killing anybody.
  • Smile and nod some more.
  • Do creative projects.
  • Include glitter and glue to keep them interested.
  • Keep them busy.
  • Pack up your room as a geometry lesson.
  • Sign 1,000,000 year books.
  • Give 1,000,000 hugs.
  • Accept gifts of coffee cups and candy with a smile.
  • Store the handwritten notes in your filing cabinet.
  • More deep breaths.
  • Refuse to pull your hair out or beat your head against the wall.
  • Enjoy your students one last time.
  • Do cartwheels as the buses pull away on the last day.

Thank you for all you do, teachers!  Enjoy your summer!!
