Today is our last day of school for 2018! Once we hit the halfway mark of the day, the students go off and the holiday break begins! One thing that I am looking forward to , aside from going on our Bahamian cruise, is getting some much needed rest. We have been moving non-stop ever since we finalized on our house, and I need a moment to just take it all in and realize how successfully hubby and I are moving through our lives. But anywho, with it being the Friday right before holiday break, it’s time for a #TeachStyle – and today, we are going to talk about dress down Fridays and holiday spirit weeks.
SHOP THE LOOK:
This week at school has been the holiday spirit week put together by one of our student groups. The days have ranged from holiday pajama day to fully decked out in all of your holiday gear day.
It’s been super fun to celebrate the holidays with the students and dress up in our holiday festive looks. And today, with our dress down Friday, we were able to put on our holiday festive looks and the teachers were given permission to wear jeans!
Jean days are like holy grail days for some of us teachers. Don’t get me wrong – I have no problem wearing my work pants, but jeans are just so much more comfortable to me and I feel like I have more energy when I wear my jeans to teach because I am comfortable.
Maybe Christmas, he thought, doesn’t cmoe froma store. Maybe Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more.

I’ll take the fact that our final holiday gift is the ability to wear jeans throughout the week. As many know, comfort, to me, is one of the greatest luxuries and any time that I can have the ability to wear jeans to work, I’m singing loud for all to hear.
With that in mind, I am sending my students off today with well wishes for a safe and enjoyable holiday break. Many of them have told me about their upcoming plans and the traditions that they’ll be celebrating. And some even brought me holiday gifts, which I can always appreciate. It’s even in the small thing. It shows their appreciation that teacher need a reminder of from time to time.
