Today will provide me with many great experiences to write about. I will end the day having worked on a Summer PD with a great colleague (after having written sub plans for my own class,) in a city an hour away. I will then have traveled to a hospital to pick up records for my son that he needs. After that, I will have joined my 5th grade team (after driving an hour back to school) in a vertical alignment meeting with the 6th grade team and finish the school day working on report cards (we have like an hour of work time 🙃 )
I will be staying at school, hopefully getting in a walk with a friend, and then heading to the gym to play Whiffle Ball for Dad’s night out. It sounded like such a good idea a month and a half ago when I signed up. I am on Team A.
With all of that being said and listed, I am writing now at 5:13 AM.
I never feel ahead or on top of things. Teaching is a perpetual TRIAGE and with the juggling act, balls get dropped and then added back in. I have to stay light and keep a positive attitude. Truly, the list is comical. Last night one of my biggest personal accomplishments was not eating potato chips at 9:30.
Sometimes reflections occur after the event, but when my daily-lineup looks like this, I can only think that I need to reflect and share now and stay ahead of the game.
Have a great day and wish me luck!
