You are probably wondering why I gave my blog the title I did. Well it so happens that my surname is Sommer which is actually the German spelling of the season summer. Since my ancestors came from Germany, that makes sense. I live in a country where there are four seasons; summer, winter, spring and fall. It does not matter which season it is. My surname never changes, thus the name, Sommer Season all year.
“Who Am I?” I have been teaching high school for past 35 years and I recently retired from teaching. Some have told me that I must have been crazy to teach school as long as I did, while others look at me with admiration and say, “I could never be a teacher”. Nonetheless, I very much enjoyed my teaching career minus the occasional irate parent or difficult child.
So what might you read about in this blog? Well, just about anything. I will share some of my thoughts, beliefs, opinions, personal adventures and stories, or whatever I may feel like writing about that day. You may not agree with everything I have to say, but that is okay. My students certainly didn’t always agree with me in class, but that did not stop me from giving my opinions.
