What NOT to do in the Summer as an International Teacher

Last summer was a horribly beautiful learning experience. Learning can sometimes be like that, it doesn't feel good. Often it comes from making mistakes.

I used to think summer is the ideal time to see all the docs, practice yoga, some good PD, loose 5 pounds, visiting family, clean my apartment, play my ukulele, go to the beach. Now I think that my expectations were too high!

Being a teacher overseas comes with this image of being so worldly and having traveled so much. And it's true, you learn to live as other people do and see things that so many never can. However, I've forgotten to pace myself! Year after year, on repeat. There is so much to see and experiences to be had, but not enough time. Life
