When I started this Haiku Monday tradition it seemed like forever until school would be out. Now I just have two more Mondays until the end of the school year and three more until I’m “free” for the summer. This was the first Monday in a while that’s been sunny–a welcome change!
School work is getting intense. Regular classes end a week from tomorrow, so the time to teach new material is short and review has to fit in there somehow. Today I felt like a recording set on fast forward. It makes the day fly by, but it makes me a little sad, too, because I love what I’m teaching now in ninth grade and I would like some time to linger over it. It feels like we spend all year plodding through the Middle Ages and then flash like lightning through the Renaissance. Now that I think about it, though, that’s kind of perfect. The Renaissance was a lot like lightning. Hmmmm…I like that.
Perspective, color, and line
