Seed Catalogs

Teachers head back to school tomorrow. Because we’re on a trimester system, the summers feel especially short to me. Ok, they might also feel that way because I tend to pack them full of work and travel.

The week and a half before students return is always a challenging time for me. One of the reasons I became a teacher was to avoid days full of meetings with adults 🙂 Despite knowing that kids learn best when adults work together, I sometimes find it hard to remain engaged and focused. It’s like wanting to garden, but sitting in a room looking at seed catalogs in early Spring. One has to balance the overwhelming desire to start digging already with the needed dreaming and planning. Planting season’s just around the corner though, and I’m sure when it does come, I’ll be grateful for much of the planning.
