As the close of this year's school term draws near, ma ny
teachers i·n elementary and secondary schools ~re s peculating on what they will do during the vacation mont hs. Aftet·
nine mont hs ef more nr less confining work in t he classroom,
some feel that they deserve a few w ee ks of p lay before r esuming their t eaching u uties next f11 ll. A grea t number,
perh~ps, will be enga ged in some remunerative work during
the summer months, while t here may be others w ho will b e
contented to drift through vacation without any sort of plan
for either work or play.
Most •t eachers who a rc conscient iously interested in th e
teaching prof ession a rc directly interested in making themselves worthy and capable membei·s. To keep pace with the
innovations in moderu. teach ing methods, progressive teachers tinct it advisable t o s pend at leas t a few weeks each year
in a teacher training coll(lge. Each summer finds a larger
per cent of teachers chcos ing this means of adding to their
professional knowledge. Such ad attitude is undoubtedly a
healt hy s ign of educauonal advancement and deserves the
highest commendation from every one concerned with the
improvement of our school system.
During the summer term last year there was a larg er en·
rollment in Glenville S<:lte Teachers College than ther e wa~
during either sem ester of the preceding reg ular term: Most
teachers are conscious of tr,e value of a few weeks s pent in
college wher e they m'g llt not only add to their professional
knowledge but also g~in new ideas f r om those with whom
they a-ssociate. Wit h en invariably decided jmprovement in
their social and professional s tatus they return to their respective schools in the fall and take up their work with ren.ewed vigor and The expense is negligible,
Since most teachers spend as much or more t han is required
for the summer Lerm, no matter what they do.-Jarrett w.
