Ups and downs
Tuesday, April 02, 2013
I realize that it has been a while since I've posted. Last week definitely started as a down. Huge fight with my husband that he just doesn't see cancer treatment as debilitating, so I should be doing what I normally do. Considered dropping out of treatment. rest of the week was not necessarily up, just not as far down. Now I am just chomping at the bit to be finished. Work was not much better. Someone had a clever idea about what the seniors could do during testing (doesn't it seem obscene that education cannot occur in my building for anyone due to testing), which was not really a good idea. Had mini-riots in my class. Told them that they probably wanted me in the auditorium rather than babysitting people, but they were sure they had it covered. At noon I was dispatched to take care of a few hundred seniors who had escaped from the auditorium and into the cafeteria. Yes, one person can face down that many, if you are mean enough and know enough names. However, would have been nice to have admin with me. Today, have been relieved of my babysitting duties and sent to watch the seniors. What a good plan... If any of you wonder why teachers don't want to test, this is another reason.
