Friday Distraction: Take a Vacation

Remember how when you first became a teacher all of your 'business world' friends were jealous every summer because you got 10 weeks or so of vacation?  I know you took classes and prepared lessons over the summer so most of it was really a working vacation.  But I'm sure you at least slept in a bit every day.

Then you became an administrator with a 12 month schedule and you stopped taking vacations.  "There's too much to do in the summer to get ready for the kids to come in September!" Is the refrain of  weary principals and assistant principals everywhere. 

Bullocks!  You need to recharge.  Make a commitment to take at least a week this summer for yourself and your family.  I guarantee that come September, you will be able to attack the school year with increased vigor.

Leave a comment and let me know where you're going.  I'm headed to Orlando for a week with the wife and kids.

Have a great weekend!
