    I miss having a school where we are allowed to be festive and have celebrations. :( Our school is like a prison, sadly. No decorations, no celebrations, no parties, no bringing in treats for the kids, no talking about what we're going to do over the holiday break, and absolutely no Christmas movies. We must focus solely on instruction. Students are expected to be learning and working hard on the last day before Christmas break, but it's so hard because the kids are off the walls. o_O

    That’s brutal. My school is completely opposite and we have been encouraged to do fun stuff all this week.

    My husband and I are going to see a movie on Thursday after work. Friday will be all about wrapping presents, doing laundry, and cleaning! And Hallmark Christmas movies...

    We have a full school day through Friday, but I took Friday off (as a Title/Resource teacher I don't see many students on party days anyway). Friday we have my husband's annual meeting for work in the morning (his company does profit sharing, so they find out their "bonus" at the meeting) and then dropping the new puppy off at the shelter for boarding and heading to my parent's house for the last Christmas at their house (they sold their house of the past 20 years and will be moving up by us in early January).

    My vacation actually started early. I have interviews in my new town today and tomorrow, so yesterday ended up being my last day.

    Let ‘em have it, haha!

    1 day left for me! I’m so excited!!!

    And my students got me a ton of Christmas gifts, one of which is a generous gift certificate to my local movie theatre. Naturally, I’m having a movie marathon after I get off work today at no cost to me! What a great way to start my break. :)
