As a teacher, I love the built-in breaks!
I am now on Spring Break.
I do not need to grade any papers this weekend.
Or plan out any lessons for a unit.
I do not need to visit the library to checkout books.
Or plan out a read-aloud for a mini-lesson demonstration.
I do not need to gather items for the estimation jar
Or make a fraction anchor chart.
It’s Saturday, the first day of Spring Break!
I can sleep until noon.
Then stay in my pajamas to watch NCAA basketball.
But I’m not.
Instead, I’m up at 4am.
I’m heading to Union Station.
I’m training to Penn Station, NYC
I’m heading to Riverside Church.
To pray with my people.
It’s the 90th Saturday Reunion.
At Teachers College Reading and Writing Project.
THE place for me to be today!
