Eight more school days until Spring Break.
That may be all I have to say today.
I’m surrounded by piles of books.
Piles of papers.
Lists of things to do on too many pieces of paper.
Calendars needing to be cross-checked.
More students to help than time in the day.
More lessons, reflections, meetings, and events than I can hold.
I wonder if the work of teaching isn’t something like
The forces required to bring spring–
Pushing in all directions.
The xylem and phloem of school.

Hang in there! I love the idea of the xylem and phloem of school.
love your comparison.
Hang in there…and then ENJOY break!!!
Thanks, Sally! I loved your post about your social justice book clubs. So cool!
You’re not alone in counting days!
Your entrance of xylem and phloem are a surprise and add a rich image.
I also imagine Spring as tough and moving and pushing 🙂
