TGIF

It’s Friday. If I spoke multiple languages, I’d praise Friday in every one and invent a few more to praise it thoroughly. Whilst doing multiple praising, I’d leap onto the nearest table and do a pretty incredible happy dance…in toe shoes, balanced on a tower of marbles…which, under normal circumstances, would be quite impossible, but anything’s probable under the magical guise of two very powerful words…It’s Friday…which is technically three powerful words, but who’s counting?

This has been the most difficult fall yet regarding my teaching career. Not due to the children I teach, but to the adults I deal with administratively. Not every administrator has administrative talents, much to the dismay of employees who suffer the consequences.

I think things are starting to settle down…which means I might actually get to spend time with my family soon. They’ve almost forgotten who I am…thank goodness for texting—it keeps my presence alive.

Speaking of which…is anyone out there? Writing blog posts is a passion I haven’t indulged for a long time, and I’m trying to remedy that…

I'm here, nice to see you back. I sometimes go long stretches without posting too-sometimes busy, sometimes just don't know what to write. I'm going through some challenges with work too, going through a merger. Some managers don't have much managerial talents either.

I think managers and administrators succumb to the Peter Principal! So glad to hear from both of you :)

Been there, done that. " But Mrs. --- a good teacher doesn't need books to teach from".. (Never mind that 34 of the 35 children have MATH books. The adm. is waiting for one child to move out of the area, this way he won't have to order any more books. Never mind he should have ordered enough extra books in the first place.
