The Ultimate Teacher Summer Break To-Do List (of FUN things!)

School’s out and you’re officially on teacher summer break! You made it – woohoo! It’s officially time to shut the classroom door and hopefully catch up on some rest, relaxation, “you” time, and time spent with your family and friends. I know as teachers, we can’t help but think about school and the year ahead, but I hope you’ll take some time to do some FUN things that you enjoy – for yourself, with your loved ones, and as a teacher. To help you out, I’ve created the ultimate teacher summer fun to-do list with ideas for you to try out all summer long!

Teacher Summer Break To-Do List

To help you make the most of your teacher summer, I’ve divided the to-do list into 3 categories: things to do just for you, with family and friends, and as a teacher.

I challenge you to see how many items you can check off of your teacher summer to-do list! Be sure to comment below and let me know what you’re trying!
