‘Twas the day after Christmas when all through the school, not a creature was stirring with the hallways so cool.
Mrs. Van checked on things inside and out, while making her routine holiday safety walk-about.
When what to her wandering eye should appear but a teacher planning lessons, such a dedicated career!
With a building so cold, no lights did she use, she just wanted the comfort of her classroom muse.
Her house was quite crowded because all the relatives came; she wanted peace and control and no fussing to blame!
“Just give me a few quiet minutes, Mrs. Van, then I promise to leave; I’ll go back to the eating and drama and do my best to retrieve…my sanity, a level of comfort, and some quiet all alone; and get through this vacation week with some rest of my own.”
As she smiled, gave a gentle hug to assure this great teacher too; Mrs. Van said, “you’ll get through this holiday, but before you do…try to focus on the fact you need this time away; you need time for family, friends, fellowship, and play.”
So here’s to a few days down and several more to go; school days will be with us before we know…
EnJOY your time away; stay safe and have fun! Happy winter break Miller learners and leaders; you’re always #1! 🙂
