The winter months….as in December, January, and even February are full-fledged madness. It’s no wonder you probably worry you won’t survive the holidays as a teacher. With so many holidays that can be covered, a classroom full of antsy kids itching for a break, and the holiday treats with enough sugar to fuel a jet engine, it’s a wonder how teachers survive these winter months.
Just in the span of 3 months, these are just SOME of the holidays celebrated.
- New Year’s Eve
- Martin Luther King Jr. Day
- 100th Day of School
- Groundhog’s Day
- Super Bowl
- Lunar New Year
- Valentine’s Day
- President’s Day
