Many people say to me, "oh, the summers must be so nice and slow for you". HA! There are times during the summer when I am busier than at some times during the actual school year. There is always a record to be updated, a parent to be called, data to be analyzed, handbooks to be edited and overhauled, files to reorganize--you name it.
When the students come back--well, that is what we live for and work for. But the preparation can stretch you in many different ways.
