Oh today...enough said...


Friday, December 06, 2013

Last night was a late one...so it was an early tired morning....went to work in the high school today...I'm not a fan of subbing there. I love love love elementary school, I love/like middle school because they appreciate my sarcasm, and it tolerate high school because of their attitudes...thankfully I'm usually only in the high school for two teachers, so I know the kids enough and how to deal with them specifically...

Anyways, it just amazes me how much they think I'm oblivious to things...yes, I overlook a lot more than a teacher would, but I figure you really need to pick your battles with them, and fighting over a quick text when they do their work, or giving them extra time at the end of the period works..anyways, the one group of boys like to play music on the computer when they're done, which is fine, I usually read my book since they're all working on extra homework or talking....it cracks me up because they think I will throw a fit when I hear them swear...and they have all the qualities of a little kid, they look at me as soon as I do it....and yet, I sit there and try not to crack up as they want my response......but anyways, the other group was talking about some things that I'm not going to mention but trying to cover it up so wouldn't know what they are talking about....it makes me laugh...it's like they don't realize that I'm only 7 years older than them...I was in high school too...but whatever....

A decent day...somehow a sprite and a Mountain Dew made it in my diet...whoops, but I went to a wicked hard strength training class tonight...wicked, like horrible, oh my god hard class.....

Thank goodness I am jumping into Lake Erie tomorrow...it will my first well deserved ice bath....and yes, I will complain as soon as all my muscles start to hurt....

    Just the opposite, I love High school and middle school and while I teach elementary most of the time, they have LOTS of energy and my expectation scare many of them. But they still love me regardless- I can not say the same for high school.
PS When you finally apply to teach, there are a lot more elementary positions then Middle school or high school.
have a good year
