    I have such a love hate relationship with the summer! I am so excited for my vacation to arrive, but I don't want the summer to go by too fast! :rotfl2:

    This is the first summer that I have "off". I finished up my Master's degree last summer. Still, doing the happy dance until WDW :banana: .

    I'm in school until June 7th. Congratulations on getting the Master's done TAKitty. I completely understand when you talk about not wanting the summer to go by too fast. We've got our first DL trip planned for this June and free dining to look forward to on a trip to WDW in August (although I'm already panicking about not having enough time to prepare the new school year since in-service days start two days after we get home!) as well as two week-long graduate courses. The good news is I'll be at Masters +60, the top of the pay scale credit-wise (other than Doctorate, which I have absolutely 0% desire in pursuing), so this is the last hectic summer for me.

    Ditto. Took me many years not to feel guilty about summers off. Finally I said, what the heck, I didn't make the decision. Enjoy it.
    Got three trips planned to WDW.
    SSR over father's day to see my daughter, currently a CM. (23 days)
    BWV July 23-29 with inlaws (maybe- they aren't terribly dependable right now) (Somewhere in the neighborhood of 60 days).
    OKW one night to drive back with DD August 18th.
    Scheduled to teach 3 one week grad classes if enough participants sign up. As of now, only one is for sure.
    Writing curriculum.....
    Summers sure are a whole lot shorter than they used to be.....
    But retirement is one more day closer.

    Kagan (educator seminar type classes) always has a class at the CR. I have often wondered if my school would pay for me to go. . .

    I wish I was starting my summer vacation next week. Our school year isn't done until the end of June so we've got another 5 weeks left. I will be finishing off my summer vacation at WDW with Free Dining from Aug. 26th - Sept. 1st. :cool1: I can't wait to go, but I have a feeling I'm going to regret wishing away my summer while I wait for WDW!

    School doesn't end for me until June 27th. I hate to rush ahead to thinking about my August trip to WDW, but I can't help if. Unfortunately, the quicker that gets here, so does the end of my vacation. Gotta love being a teacher though! :yay:

    This Texas teacher will be in WDW July 23-29. The students last day was yesterday and ours was today. I am however, teaching summer school. It will only be the month of June though. It will be my spending money for :banana: WDW!

    No, it took me 2 years. It was one of the hardest things I have ever done. The second time around was better because you can choose what you need to do over. I did one portfolio over and got a perfect score on it. I have been celebrating ever since! Go for it! :cheer2:

    I am a teacher too, and our last day is June 16th. I'm dragging two fellow teachers along with me, and we're leaving the morning of the 17th. No sense wasting any time! Hope the end of the year comes swiftly for all of you!
