Every Tuesday I blog and share at twowritingteachers.org. Teacher writers share and comment on at least 3 posts.
Here we are.
This week is the last with students. Today I will spend the morning outside and have regular day in the afternoon. This is my last in person day with Cohort A.
I am ready for the end of the year. So ready. I am formulating a plan to recharge over the next couple of weeks because I won’t be able to function if I don’t.
I have been looking closely at what fuels me and what depletes me and what are my nonnegotiables.
Summer for me means I live a writer’s schedule. I have time in the mornings to write and then walk. I started running again now that the weather seems to be cooperating as well.
I am intentionally reading a poem, short story, and essay everyday to use them as my own mentor texts for revision. You can read about that here.
This end of the school year I imagine will feel more complete than last year’s. I am thinking of doing a couple of things that will unplug me from the world and input that is not good for me.
These next two weeks I am approaching one day at a time. I am diligent about putting things into lists and my calendar or it won’t happen!
Right now I feel flat.
The holiday weekend was great with a lot of time outside so that was wonderful. I will ride that energy wave as long as I can!
