My Dreams Didn't Get the Message, I'm on Summer Vacation

The past few nights I've had dreams about school. Well more like nightmares.
  • I've been stuck in a classroom where I didn't know any of the kids names.
  • Locked in a windowless room without a schedule telling me when lunch was or even when the end of the day was. Not that it mattered cause there wasn't a clock in the completely white room either!
  • Stuck in a classroom with a bunch of hoodlums that didn't listen to me one little bit as they destroyed the classroom around me.

Not fun!! I'd appreciate the school nightmares to be gone. After all I'm on summer vacation. No thoughts, or nightmares, of school allowed!


  1. oh no! I hope you quit having them soon. I don't know any tips for you...perhaps there is something on the internet. Good luck!

  2. my s-i-l is a teacher and she wrote about this EXACT same thing yesterday!

    must be a teacher thing ;-)

  3. oh no! Let's try to find some positive: how about - it must feel so good when you wake up and realize it was just a dream and it's actually summer?!! :)
    Sorry Mel, I wish I knew how to help you with that...
    Hope they go away soon :)
    Most importantly, hope you are enjoying your summer!!! :)

  4. Ahh I can't stand bizarre dreams! Hopefully you have better night's sleep tonight! :) XOXO

  5. I've been out of the classroom for over 5 years and I still have those dreams on a regular basis - AND they still terrify me!

  6. like the previous commenter, i've been home for 3 yrs & i still get them sometimes too! oh the trauma!

  7. Mine last night was that half my desks were in the classroom the other half in hallway due to lack of space...and I was wearing a sombrero? Guess I was back to teaching Spanish 1 again... The kids had dumped all of my stuff all over the floor by accident with their book bags b/c we were in such tight quarters...and then, my principal walks in for an observation in the middle of the chaos.

  8. I SO know what you mean! I hate waking up after school has invaded my summer sleep! = )


Go ahead...tell me like it is!
