Ah summer, that wonderful season when students and teachers both have a chance to recharge after a long school year, nurture hobbies and interests beyond the classroom, and grow in ways that will make them better for the school year yet to come in the Fall. Whether it’s pursuing┬ásome education, attending conferences, or conducting local book clubs, educators fins many ways to ensure that the months that might be seen as “down time” from the rest of the school year, are actually “up time” for themselves.

Rachelle Wynkoop, Secondary Instruction Supervisor for Port Huron Schools, led us through a chat about summer plans. We shared, plans for personal and professional growth, conference opportunities, and ways in which teachers rejuvenate themselves while class isn’t in session.
