In summary

A lot is going on here at school. I'm dealing with bullies, parents screaming at each other, IEPs up the wazoo, the state's standardized writing test looming, and paperwork/materials/student work piled so high on my desk that I can barely see past it.
 
It's like I've always said: Teaching is constantly trying to stay one step ahead of the game while always falling two steps behind.
 
But there are some happy things to look forward to:
  1. Spring Break is in three weeks. HALLELUJIAH!
  2. Going to see "New Moon" at the dollar theater tonight with a girlfriend who's just as into The Twilight Series as I am. I've been waiting forever to see this movie, and now my life will finally be complete...
  3. One of my best friends is visiting in a week and bringing her six week old daughter with her. Yay!
So I'm going to think happy thoughts in an effort to prevent the stress and drama at work from swallowing me whole... Have a happy weekend, everyone!

All you have to do is say "IEPs" and I'm ready to hand you a drink. One year, 50 of my 90 students had them. I felt like all I did was sit in IEP meetings.
