From Melissa Kelly, your Guide to Secondary Education
As the year comes to an end, teachers will be left with a couple of days to ‘checkout’ of their classroom before they begin their summer vacation in earnest.
End of the Year Checklist 

Schools typically give teachers a list of what they have to do before they can be released for the summer. However, this typically does not cover everything that a teacher needs to remember before they hand in their keys and leave. This list includes both the obvious and less obvious items that teachers need to make sure that they complete before they head out for summer break.

Teaching Seniors 

There is a certain attitude in high schools that Senior teachers often get off easy. Typically, their students finish sooner than the rest of the school. Further, the worst behaved students have often times left school for good by that point. Despite these positives, teaching Seniors is not always a bed of roses.
