For most of you, the school year is over. Take a deep breath and take pride in a job well done! I know that there is never a “down time” for a SPED Director, but at least take time to celebrate milestones!
This weekend I was out of town (though intending to get work done remotely!) and for about a 6-hour period yesterday morning I had no Internet access and my phone would not text! Oh, my! My initial response was PANIC! “OMG, what am I going to do? I can’t work; I can’t communicate!”
Well you know what? I found out that there are other things to do that don’t involve accessing your work in the “cloud” . . . and . . . I actually made a phone call where I TALKED to the person! Who knew?! For 6 hours I experienced relaxation (once I got over the panic!) and engaged in old fashioned talk time. Try it; you’ll like it! Unplug some this summer!
