  • @MrsWilliams_edu: “Spend time with family, Colorado to escape the heat of TX, get back to working out”

  • @claudiacb13: “Recovering from teaching exhaustion, doctors’ appointments, workshops and planning for next year. Then, visiting my son& daughter-in-law in August.”
  • @LynnTeaches3rd:“I love working on rubberstamping projects and I’m dabbling in quilling. Those are bucket list art activities for me since I don’t typically make time for it during the school year. This isn’t my pic, but I bought the same frame to try replicating the art.”

Q3: Have you ever volunteered during your summer break? Share your experience and any organizations you recommend.

So many to choose from, but we love participating in Habitat for Humanity with the whole family! hubs.ly/Q01VDXtd0

Any tips for fellow teachers?

We know “summer slide” is a concern for teachers and parents – so we partnered with@Adventure2Learn to host our very first #ClassTagSummerCamp! Starting June 20th parents can login to get teacher-approved activities that’ll help create lasting summer memories.
