The students are crazy; antsy in their seats, buzzing around with anticipation for the break to begin. The teachers might be more crazy; with last minute marking to finish, getting packed and ready for our vacations, and in desperate need of some rest and relaxation. It’s the period right before winter break, and we all just want to head out for the holidays and leave school and work behind for a few weeks.
Though the weeks leading up to winter break were hectic, they were also filled with fun. I had our staff Christmas dinner and the Clockenflap Music Festival to look forward to, and a few fun nights out with good friends before we all parted ways for the holidays.
