Maybe that's a slight exaggeration, but let's get real for a minute. I've had a rough couple days at school (nothing major) and then hearing things are wonderful (ha) state department of education is thinking of doing as part of future teacher evaluations honestly made me leave school and ask myself (and my mom!), "Why am I doing this again?" What an awful feeling! I think sometimes it's easy to read blogs and think how perfect their classroom must be, how wonderful and supportive the parents are, etc, but it's just not always like that! Teachers get frustrated just like everyone else! I hate to be a debbie downer, but I think sometimes you just gotta embrace those moments, learn from them, and move on! My goal in my personal life this year is to get more organized. I think I am a pretty organized person by nature, but much could be improved. I've worked on organizing things at home like part of my garage, all of my son's clothes birth to 18 months, and a few other small projects. It feels good to get organized.
Now with my first Masters class starting tomorrow, I am feeling quite overwhelmed. On top of being wife, mommy, and teacher I am going back to student. Let me tell you...after reading what I have to do in Week 1, I am in panic mode. It's a LOT of work. So with this getting organized kick, I am making it my goal to get organized with my time as well and prepare better with my time. Wish me luck. Hopefully this week will be a much better week at school. Hey, it always is when you start your Monday planning period with a meeting, right? Well, I guess it's all part of it. Have a good week!
