I’ve been out with a persistent “bug” for a little while now, and finally feel ready to get back in the saddle. After you’ve been away for a few days, it feels like forever. Things have piled up since you’ve been gone. It seems like the year is slipping away (we only have sixty days left? We HAVE to get moving on those decimals!) I have to remind myself to take a step back and remember that it’s okay to have a substitute once in awhile. That it’s more important for thier teacher to work at 100% for most of the days, than it would have been to teach sick and tired for all of them. (the kids are better off for it anyway – no one wants a cranky teacher!) 🙂
But now it’s time to really focus on the work. Remember and reenergize about what we’re doing – getting these kids ready for life! Put me in, coach! I’m ready!
