Thankful Thursday: 1/16/14

[Thankful Thursday is a weekly segment that began 1/10/13 - read why here.  I invite you to join me in practicing gratitude!]

I'm thankful for all of the quiet, alone time I've had thus far at school during winter break -- this "desk warming" time is awesome!  Our contract already gives us 20 vacation days to take during the year, which adds up to four full weeks.  That's pretty good for a full time job, eh?  Nearly on par with the Europeans.

So of the remaining 11 months of work, if some of those days are spent in an empty school without classes to constantly plan for and teach, I'm all for it.  I'm so at ease and relaxed working in the office alone, with no one looking over my shoulder.  I'm able to get a lot done: reading, blogging, learning coding, planning lessons for next semester, etc.  When March rolls around I'll surely be looking back longingly at these days.
