Well, it is July 2nd and about this time of the summer I wonder where it has gone. This summer has been a crazy one. I am teaching classes at the Paris Art Center. I have done this for several years and I always enjoy it. The kids are great! It gives me a chance to work with students that I hope to have in the future. But squeeze in classes, vacation, and being sick, my summer has vanished.

I started thinking that it is time for me to think about my curriculum for next year. I am one of those silly teachers who thinks I should change my lessons every year. I hate teaching the same thing, it is so dull, so I always manage to create new lessons each year that bring a similar outcome. Any ideas ... let me know! I can use all the help I can get.

I know this school year will be very different. I am already missing some dear teaching friends who made a difficult decision to move closer to family and teach. They were a lot of fun and I know how much the kids will miss them as well!

Take care and have a great rest of the summer!
