I have a confession to make. Working in an elementary school makes me into a grinch. I start liking Christmas again on the first day of Christmas Break. Before that, though, I start to get grouchy. I turn into a mean little green animal. Last week I actually stole the Christmas tree out of the school library and dragged it back to my lair.
Okay, it's not that bad. I don't enjoy holiday projects or holiday parties at school, though. I wish I could keep teaching through the curriculum as if nothing special was going on. I really do.
