We’re approaching the most wonderful time in the school year. That time we’ve been looking forward to ever since we walked through the doors back in August/September. Yup, that’s right, the end of the school year. That glorious time of the year when students and teachers alike come to the mutual, unspoken agreement that no one gives a f* anymore, so let’s let it all hang out.
Don’t pretend like you don’t know what I’m talking about. You know. Oh yes, you. know. A lot has happened this year. You’ve dealt with a lot this year. You’re feeling the weariness. The exhaustion. The effects of being beat down by administration, colleagues, parents and students. And ultimately, things… have… changed from the start of the school year to the end.
Let’s compare, shall we?
