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... ;)
