First, it's my birthday month. I'm celebrating the tenth anniversary of a milestone birthday on the 29th! Teaching, I think, has a way of making me feel older than I am. The students just don't get a lot of my references!
Second, it's poetry month. As an English teacher I totally geek out over the fact that there's an entire month devoted to a form of literature! #love
Third, it's Shakespeare's birthday! Yesterday was anyways and well again- I'm an English teacher nerd!
Fourth, here in Ohio it finally starts to feel like spring. This typically occurs late in the month but it's glorious. You hear the birds, see crocus' and daffodils bloom, and the green that had disappeared all winter shows back up.
Fifth, it signals the end of the college school year. I have finals the first and second week of May and then I'm mostly free for the summer! I am so ready for a mini break and to rework some parts of my classroom.
How was your month? Is April your favorite too?
Thanks for reading!
