This is what June looks like. The insane amounts of corrections that pile up too high, just so you can create another one right beside it. This is what June looks like. Students last minute projects handed in 2-3 months after the due date. This is what June looks like. The mess on my desk is out of hand, and no, I don’t have time to tidy up. This is what June looks like. The season of report cards just because we needed more administrative work to add to our load. This month that comes every year brings stress and frustration, anxiety and long sleepless nights, sore backs and tired eyes. This month brings chaos and lack of structure. This month is insane and it’s why I deserve, NEED, my two months to regather and breath. This month is when I ask myself too many times if this is the right career for me?
Next thing you know, the kid that struggled with her writing, wrote a dissertation. The kid that was afraid of water went swimming for the first time this year. The kid that “just wouldn’t get it” GOT IT! The kids... MY KIDS are the reason I choose to come back every summer well aware that there will be another month of June that follows!
