Absence Makes the Heart Grow Fonder
I've heard that phrase all my life, usually in cases where a loved one and I had to be apart for some amount of time. But I think it applies in other situations as well...teaching, for instance. While I'm enjoying my "off" time (as some would call it), I find myself continually thinking about the upcoming school year. It is the same every Summer. Although I've been extremely busy teaching numerous professional development sessions, attending conferences, and vacationing with family, I truly miss my classroom and the kids. I've even found myself buying classroom items such as picture books on my vacations! Its truly a blessing to be able to do the what I truly love.
