Summer Teacher QuizMostly A’s - The Summer Fun Teacher

You’re the teacher of everyone’s envy, taking your summer vacation by storm and refusing to apologize for it! This well-deserved break opens up your schedule for the important work ahead: working on your tan, working on your relationships with family/friends, and working on your mental health.

Remember to utilize the time that you have to knock off those school year to-do lists you make for summer, but easily forget. Productivity is always easiest when you’re busy… so you’ve got to force it when you aren’t.

Summer Teacher QuizMostly B’s -The Sumer Kiddy Corral Teacher

Break, what break? Between baseball, cleaning and house maintenance, family/neighborhood events and keeping the kids (and your spouse) out of trouble, you’ve barely taken a breath since school let out. Even your family vacation feels like a full-time job!

Remember not to let the summer agenda get you down. Enjoy some unplanned, lazy time with your favorite people on Earth!

Summer Teacher QuizMostly C’s -The Summer Work-a-Day Teacher

You’re a teacher-by-May, and a bartender/clerk/office worker/tutor-by-June. These few months free of teacher are a nice mental break, but that doesn’t mean you don’t work for a living. Whether you enjoy the part-time gig or just need the cash, you don’t know the meaning of “down time.”  

Remember to take at least some full-on vacation time. You deserve it and you’ll need it come the fall!

Teaching is in your blood. Even if that bell doesn’t begin your day, education and improving your classroom skills are always on your mind.  Summer is your time to catch up on new strategies, sharpen your skills and get organized for the next school year.

Remember to take some time for yourself and rest up. It’ll be good for you and your students!
