Reflective Teaching Day 27 – Role of weekends and holidays!

Day 27 – @TeachThough  30 Day Reflective Teaching Challenge  

What role do weekends and holidays play in your teaching?

Weekends and Holidays are vital for the teaching profession. They give teachers and students a like a much needed break. An excuse to change gears, learn in a different mode or just do nothing! (We some times need permission to do nothing, I write about it earlier here.) During breaks from school learning doesn’t end, it just isn’t assessed or regimented. For me I participate many professional development activities during my weekends. These range from formal meeting to Edcamps. I spend time with my children as we travel, participate in sports or just hang around the house.

These breaks allow us to return to education FRESH, with a new perspective, new energy and zest to the learning process. Without the breaks teachers and students tend to burnout. Enjoy the breaks, so the learning is more fun!!
