Summer Bucket List for Teachers

As the end of the school year approaches, a big question on my mind is: what should I do this summer? I asked all the veteran teachers I know for their suggestions and compiled a summer bucket list.

1. Reconnect with friends and family: Traveling to see college friends and family can be difficult during the school year. Take some time in the summer to spend quality moments with your loved ones. Discover and celebrate all the awesome stuff other people are doing!

Big weekend, teachers! Tomorrow is Valentine’s, of course, and Monday is Presidents’ Day. Traditionally, we’d use this time to brush up on our knowledge of presidential trivia (who had the shortest presidency? Harrison; who had a pet pig named Maude? Roosevelt!), but this year, we may take some time out to do a little shopping—all in the name of great bargains and freedom, of course.

That all-American clothier Lucky Brand is slashing its sale items by a very patriotic, additional 50% off.
