Catfish Fair

If you don't already know, today is the day of the World Catfish Fair in Belzoni. All of my students are supposed to be there, all done up I'm sure. I'm on my way to Meredith's and then we're headed over.
I'm at the end of my spring break; we had the latest spring break out of any one. It was horrible waiting for it, but now I'm glad. Only 8 weeks left, with lots of testing in from here on out.
I am upset at the though of having to teach during the summer; I'm so burned out. My spring break really wasn't a break at all, I spent so much time on work for graduate school. I don't think we'll make a very good impression on the first years, we'll be so tired and bitter about having to do all the additional work (now, in the fall, and in the spring). I had dreams of getting to sleep in a little and wearing jeans everyday. I think we would benefit more from just getting recharged for the next school year.

Totally agree. Without a doubt, teaching over the summer will only add to burn out. Chilling in Oxdord with only two classes and having the chance to just be a student again during June, and then relaxing at home during July, far away from the Delta, was the only reason I was able to gain the strength to return to Mississippi to teach a second year. And even after that break, I still found it very difficult.
