Linda Hill’s stream of consciousness makes my Saturday blog different than my norm. It means instead of focusing on what repeatedly popped in my head, I need to focus on what popped in my head from her topic. A subtle difference but one I enjoy.
Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “leaves.” Use it as a noun or a verb. Have fun!
As is my usual goal I attempt to join my blog topic with her parameters.
When spring leaves, summer comes.
When summer comes my need to grade papers leaves. When summer comes my school stress leaves. When summer comes my demand to make parent phone calls leaves. When summer comes my desire to get to work at 6:15 leaves. When summer comes my worry about 155 little people leaves. When summer comes the necessity to attend staff meetings leaves. When summer comes my requirement to complete report cards leaves. When summer comes my obsession to redesign my lessons leaves. When summer comes my wish to people please my coworkers leaves. When summer comes my “must gotta” list leaves.
This time I leave my classroom for the last time. I am grateful that after 35 years I am entering my own perpetual summer.
