Wow. It’s finally May. I honestly wasn’t sure I would make it here.
Why would I think that you ask? Cause I am a teacher. Yes, I write occasionally and have this book getting published soon but as all of my teacher friends understand – that matters nothing when faced with a classroom full of tired, worn out, burned out, frazzled, overstimulated and under producing classroom of 35 kids.
What matters is survival. And survive me must. How can we do that with still 3 weeks left in the year?! Well I am glad you asked. Just simply keep these mantras in mind…..
4. I shall remember that parents are just as stressed out as we are with their kids and not say anything when they ask if their kid can do some extra credit work to get an A. I shall reply that I’m sorry but it’s mathematically impossible to get an A when your average with 3 weeks of school left is a 60.
Good luck surviving the final weeks in the jungle my friends, we are going to need it.
