No Rest for the Weary

This month has been just AWFUL! No more car drama, or any drama of any kind, really. Just totally worn out and drained by all of the teacher training sessions I have had to go to this month!

.....Gifted & Talented
.....Teaching English Language Learners
.....Keys to Quality Teaching
..... How To Have Two Margaritas/Chardonnays and Still Look Great at 6:30AM (hmm...so maybe that wasn't a training, but I have already mastered this skill ;)

I literally have trainings lasting until 7:30 or 8pm nearly every school night (I even had one all day on Saturday) <----RUDE! So usually, I get out of school, head straight to the training and then head home to plan some stuff for the next day or grade papers! I have ZERO personal time! :( This will get better though I know. Next week is my last week of awful trainings (oh and did I mention that nearly each training session has a project or homework assignment that goes along with it)..fun! I am soooo ready to take my first year "training wheels" off!

Don't get me wrong though, I do love my job! There just isn't enough time in the week to really do it perfectly or fit in everything I would want to do! Oh well, could be worse! Here is a pic of
me in action with some of my kiddos from my social studies class
we were in the library working on a Middle Eastern Scavenger Hunt!

Our whole 6th grade is going to the Dallas Museum of Art on Tuesday for a field trip! Ahh, might be scary! I'll report back to let you know how it goes! Hope you had a restful weekend, I sure didn't! Maybe one of these days... ;)


  1. I feel like the training and professional development never end. It can be exhausting. Have a great field trip this week!

  2. You sure have been busy girl! Hopefully you'll be able to have some time to relax :) Have a great week!

  3. Hope the field trip goes well! And Im sure all of the trainings will slow down! Hopefully you are learning lots to make it a valuable experience at least!

  4. I'm glad to hear that you're enjoying your job even though it's a lot on your plate at once. I think I've really started to get more direction about what I want to do. I really do want Kris to come back. I'm being patient, and keeping my options open. Hell, maybe I should move to Dallas!!

  5. Crazy! Glad their is an end in sight for you, though. Love the pic of you with the kiddos@
