8th Grade-itis

Friday, April 30, 2021

I'm feeling pretty good. This week, I've tracked all food each day, and I've been following my fitness plan as well. Sipping water as I write this.

My only irritation/stress right now is the end-of-the-year misbehavior uptick for my 8th grade students. This is not surprising; it happens each spring. However, it's different this year. They are exhausted. They have spent a year being in hybrid, then in-person, then virtual for two weeks, back to hybrid, back to in-person...wait, one week of virtual in March, back to in-person. They are tired of wearing masks all day. They are tired of being told not to socialize in the hallways and go right to class. (And I'm just as tired.)

We had a good feedback session today so they could vent some of their opinions. Hopefully, we can now create a plan together to end our year on a positive note.

    The last few weeks of school are always challenging, but this year particularly so. Hang in there. We are almost to the finish line.

    I feel for them, too.

    HUGS to you and hang in there. Your students, too.
