Paper, Work

Tomorrow brings a long awaited break in my routine: I'll be attending an all-day Read Naturally training at the district with one of my colleagues/friends. It's going to be awesome; I'll be interacting with ADULTS, nobody will whine my name, I'll get to go OUT to lunch, I'll miss the Wednesday staff meeting, I'll get to sleep in for a whole twenty minutes, and with any luck, I'll be inspired again.

Lately, I've been really short on inspiration and motivation in the classroom. There is just something about district-induced loads of paperwork (with deadlines all too near) and pending IEP's looming on the horizon that just sucks the energy right out of me. You know it's a bad sign when you feel that the kids are getting in the way of your job. Shouldn't the kids BE my job? Apparently the district never got the memo...

In the meantime, this is what I'll look like for the next few weeks.

Thank you for the chicken tracks away from your blog site. The cat looked like Sunshine (ask Max). We sure loved that cat. I wish I LIKED our current cat. No greater love hath a man for a cat than to feed and house said cat for its longgggggg life even though you don't particularly care for it.
