HELLO. MY NAME IS LOVE, TEACH AND I AM VIOLENTLY EXCITED ABOUT THE UPCOMING BREAK.
My plans include:
- Eating an overabundance of complex carbohydrates
- Running to somewhat offset said carbohydrates and also to meet lots and lots of dogs
- Reading the final installment of Margaret Atwood’s Oryx and Crake series
- Bribing my two year-old nephew with food, books, and dinosaur paraphernalia to love me best
Oh, and starting grad school! I am PUMPED!
This year, to get the rest of you on my level of excitement (if you’re not already there), I’ve decided to issue a little challenge.
The challenge is this:
Take a photo of your Break Face, that is, your face the moment you are officially off work, and email it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. It can be the second your classroom is empty, when you’re walking (or running) to the parking lot, when you arrive home– whatever you consider being “on break”. If you’re not so sure about sending your face, feel free to send a picture of your jazz hands or other school-appropriate body parts!
Since most teachers get out for break this week, I’m making the deadline for emailing me the photo Friday, December 20th at 11:59 P.M. I will choose the Break Faces that convey the most excitement and post some finalists here, right on this here web log, on Saturday the 21st**, then I’ll have you beautiful specimens vote on a winner.
OH. I almost forgot! I served TWO detention duties in the past couple of weeks so that I could afford the following prize:
A FIFTY dollar (that’s $50) gift certificate to the wonderful world of Amazon!
So, to review:
What: A contest for who has the best “I made it to Christmas break!” face
How to enter: Email your Break Face to email@example.com
When: Before 11:59 P.M. on Friday, December 20th (this Friday!!)
Why: WHY NOT?! And because also there’s a gift card up for grabsies.
So get your Break Faces on, people.
*You also don’t have to be a teacher (no discrimination here). If you’re not on break this week, you can always pretend! I’ll never know! 🙂
**So don’t put anything in your Break Face picture you wouldn’t want the world to see, like the tops of your hairy feet or your DVD collection in the background that includes Baby Geniuses II.
