I remember when snow days meant a great day off from school. And when I was a senior in High School, those were free days. We didn’t even have to make them up at the end of the year. Even as a teacher, a random day off is kind of nice. They always seem to come at a great time when I need to get something done, need a little extra rest from a sickness or just plain want to spend some time with my kids.
But this year, this is ridiculous. I’ve lost count of how many snow days we have had and can’t get my mind off how this will affect my trip to Philly in June to be at the ISTE conference. There’s talk of making up days on Saturdays or during a spring vacations, which, quite honestly, I wouldn’t mind too much. The problem, though, is in the inconsistency. Our students can’t get into a groove and so a week with two and a half days seems like a waste. There’s little follow through and the learning keeps getting cut short. Ugh! It will be nice when we can have a complete week again.
Thanks for letting me rant today. If you would like to join me, please comment. I know I’m not alone! 🙂
