Not counting down

16 May

I’m not counting down to the end of the year yet.

Really.

There are six weeks of school left. It would be absurd to start counting down now.

But my brain can’t help it. It looks for patterns and makes connections. When my last morning traffic direction duty ended two weeks ago, my brain noted that I could check it  off my list of things that I finished for the year. And so it began.

Here, then, are the end of the year stats I have been thinking about lately, looking down from 10,000 feet.

Six weeks of school left

Only one five day week of school to go

Four more Mondays

Two more Fridays

One more staff meeting

Three more PLT meetings

Two SBAC tests

12 more Enrichment classes to teach

25 more days of school

    I remember those days, the frantic list of things to do. No matter what the needs, it is a countdown. Enjoy all the days, Adrienne!

    Countdowns are one of the best things about our profession. Lucky us!

    The heart wants what it wants, and the brain counts what it counts. Thanks for the chuckle, Adrienne.
