Summer Writing and Research

A lot of people get the wrong idea about teachers…

They seem to think that because the students are released from classes, teachers spend their summers in repose and relaxing.

I’m not going to say that I haven’t enjoyed some less hectic hours at the seashore or taking my family camping, but I know most teachers like myself take this time to update our skills and prepare for a new year.

One of the exciting aspects of teaching is the opportunity to reflect, modify and change one’s approach. Teaching is a career of constant practice and improvement. It is true that it is more of an evocation, because one has to love learning to be constantly learning.

A lot like being a writer. You spend every waking moment working on a new project or refining an old.
