It’s Christmas! Since becoming a teacher the Christmas spirit has always started as soon as the Christmas crafts begin but it is only really Christmas time once I walk out of school on the last day ready for the holidays. That is when Christmas can really begin! So today I can say – it is Christmas time!
I walked out of school today with a smile on my face and a spring in my step. Don’t get me wrong, I love my new job but there is just something about knowing that the holidays have begun that makes me extra happy.
I do have more work to do over these holidays than I would normally have. Having only started in the role last week I now have the (not so) envious job of completing next terms planning ready for the first week of term. If I had started back in September then I would have had all of this done by now ready for a relaxing break but instead I will be testing out sensory activities and completing lesson plans for a good chunk of my time off. I don’t mind though. I have a job to go back to in January and a few weeks of family time ahead of me before then.
I am one happy teacher right now!
When does Christmas start for you?
