Summer is a time to recharge our batteries, to spend time doing what we find enjoyable and thinking about family, friends, life, and school. For me the most relaxing activity is taking long walks very early in the morning, before the heat and humidity rise and make spending time outdoors difficult. Next, I love to read; during the summer I catch up on professional reading, but I also read mysteries and newspapers. I find that all the time my mind is connecting these experiences to what I learned about teaching from last year's experiences. Mulling over experiences is quite enjoyable. What do you do to relax and reflect on the school year? Please share.
