Close encounters from the bizarre and rarely understood world of public education

Teaching takes over your life. You work long, think about it at home, and work over break. It is a never ending burden or blessing, depending on your mood. I had a fantastic year, and I hope next is even better. Every break from school is different, and it takes you different amounts of time to fully embrace that vacation. If I forget about teaching, I'm on vacation. Sometimes that never happens during winter or spring breaks. For this summer, it took 3 weeks. Now I have 5 off.
