Like many other teachers, this is my first week back after Spring Break. It’s really easy for teachers and students alike to struggle those first few days coming back from break (the struggle is real), but this time also provides a chance to refocus on our goals and recenter ourselves. Breaks are a chance to recharge and come back energized, bringing the enthusiasm that can fade through a school year if we aren’t taking enough time for rest and relaxation. It can be especially hard to keep this in mind after Spring Break, with it being so close to Summer and with the weather changing. My personal goal is to use the energy I stored up over break to bring it these last two months of school and finish the year strong.
