Two Writing Teachers
Michelle and I were reminded that we usually kick of Read Across America Week on the last week of school before spring break. We combine RAA with school spirit week. There's crazy hair day, wear spring colors day, wear silly ties, hats and clothes. We celebrate reading, we go on our broadcast. We become superstars in our kids' eyes.
I have a headache just thinking of preparing for spirit week. It's ONE MORE THING. We finally finished state testing. We're barely back into our regularly scheduled groups.
Where can I find some spirit? some energy? some fun?
I do have lots of chocolate in my desk, but that sticks to the hips.
It's finally sunny outside, but there's a threat of snow.
There's sunshine inside me, but it's buried under a layer of exhausted, winter-fatigued blah-ness.
Gotta find the inner sunshine soon.... I'm tired of being a grump!
