The back to school talk is getting louder and louder as we approach mid August. Can you believe it? Where did the summer go, right?

When I caught up with a friend of mine in Baltimore on the phone this morning he said his wife, a teacher was a little blue knowing her 3 month summer vacation was nearly over. After I got past the resentment of a 9-month-a-year job I decided to throw the subject out to you to get your take.

What a mixed bag of feelings from teachers. From, “It’s the greatest time of the year,” to a teacher that quoted some kind of teachers creed: “the best 3 things are June, July and August.”

Generally speaking, I got the impression from the teachers that called the show that even if they love their summers off, they genuinely love what they do and realize it is a special privilege to mentor our children.

Of course the summers off aren’t bad either.

Take a listen to the teachers that called in today:

“It’s the greatest time of the year.”

Already back in the classroom.

“That’s such a myth.”

“Hi, my name is Molly and I’m a teacher.”

“Best 3 things are June, July and August.”
