Creating a Summer Schedule


The single greatest perk of being a teacher is undoubtedly summer. After 10 months of unceasing dedication, we absolutely deserve a break. Though as we all know, plenty of professional development, planning, and prepping goes on too! As delightful as it is to wake up at 10:00 and stay in one's pajamas all day, some of us teachers actually struggle a bit without structure. After all, we're used to not just having a start and end time to our work day, but having our day divided up into 15-minute segments (5 minute segments if you teach kinder!). I don't know about you, but on an average school day, I know exactly what's going on at 8:00, 8:15, 8:30, 8:45... and so on... until 3:00. During the school year one free hour or one free day was unbelievably precious! "Just think what I could do with an extra prep period or a day off!" we would think to ourselves. And now we have whole hours and days! 

But you know what? I've finally resigned myself to the fact that I thrive on a schedule. With a schedule, I remember to do things like eat, and exercise, and you know, leave the house. 

So without further ado... a blank summer schedule for you to fill out!

I'm not trying to run myself ragged here... I have plenty of chill time built in. But if you're like me, it can be really helpful to have a wake up time, meal times, and exercise scheduled! So go ahead and put together a daily schedule for yourself using my editable template
