Boxing Day = Grading Day

We had a lovely Christmas with new friends and new traditions. (More about our vacation later.) Today, I'm camped out in my classroom frantically trying to finish grading and report card comments before we embark on our round-the-island adventure.


One thing about being an English teacher I've found 100% true = the grading never, ever ends.

But the thing is, after a week of vacation, it's (shhhhh...) actually kind of nice to be back at work for a while.
