Unwind with a good book
Make a dent in that reading list. Settling down with a novel the perfect, guilty-free way to unwind, with the added benefit of stumbling across a great book or two for your students.
Do something different
If you’re all about giving, then volunteering or Summer school opportunities will give you the feeling of accomplishment you’re lusting after! Help out at local charities or teach in developing countries, these are opportunities that you won’t get throughout the academic year- so make the most of it! Teaching at summer schools or tutoring can be equally rewarding and will keep your skills ticking over during the break!
Get a head start on the school year
If you just can’t wait for the next academic year, why not start slowly planning the syllabus? The Summer is the perfect time to put pen to paper and start planning an educational trip that is perfectly aligned with your curriculum. STA Travel Education offer great discounts on early bird bookings and exclusive rates to teachers getting ahead of the curve!
Professional development plan
Give yourself a pat on the back! The end of the academic year is the perfect time to reflect on your year of teaching; consider the moments that you excelled and areas you’d like to improve upon. Discuss this with senior management or create your own plan.
Last but not least; catch up on those Z’s! Those early mornings and late nights marking have surely left you tired, so treat yourself to a few more hours while you can. September rolls around quickly enough!
