My office is quiet after a LONG meeting. Minutes before the bell rings, I hear snippets of kid conversations as they line up to leave for Spring Break. As the chatter builds, the excitement is palpable. It’s like the few minutes before everyone opens their gifts on Christmas Day. The anticipation. The expectations. The giddy smiles on everyone’s faces.
Spring Break is a time to hit the pause button in a busy school year. Spring is around the corner. State testing looms in the distance. Everyone regroups, rests, and refuels.
Some use the time to catch up on work that needs to be completed. Some travel to see friends or embark on an adventure in a faraway setting. Some find time for much-needed sleep.
I hope to read, enjoy slow mornings, attempt some spring cleaning, and design a few creations out of old things.
The bell rings. It begins.
