Tough Week

30 Nov

So this has been kind of a tough week.  I had a whole week off of work for Thanksgiving break and the first week back is always a hard one.  It takes a lot of effort to get the students back into the swing of things.  My voice is tired.  If you could pray for me before Sunday, I’d really appreciate it.  Talking all week, then leading worship sometimes pushes my voice to its limit.

Also, I’m still the last teacher to leave school every day.  Yes, I teach an after school program that doesn’t even get out until 4:15 so that does set me back considerably.  But its so sad when I go out to my car and my car is the only one there.  But I don’t have kids or a husband to cook for at home (Actually, I have the husband, I just rarely cook for him)

If you’re a teacher, what time do you leave school?

    Since I teach zero period, I get to school about 630 / 640 in the morning. I teach straight through till lunch time…normally around 1215. I plan, prep, grade, and clean…then I head home about 130…2 at the latest.

    David, I am jealous. What do you teach?

    I get to work between 7 & 7:30, my kids are dismissed at 2:15 and I leave around 4:00.

    Hang in there Becca. I feel for you.

    I teach high school English. I work in MoVal…. It’s my 5th year teaching. I have four preps…Two of the classes I have taught before, so it’s just a matter of pulling up a file, copies, and teach… (I love teaching, by the way). My other two classes are brand new, so I spend most of my time working on lessons and research. There are days (at least once a week or every other week) that I will stay an extra hour or two and grade and plan. Don’t be jealous Heidi…

    I get to work between 6:20 and 6:40 and leave everyday before 4. This is because of two things…

    1)I have afterschool committments everyday that require my presence by four

    2)I fell asleep at my desk my first year of teaching and decided that I needed to leave before the sun goes down. On the rare occaision that I stay longer than 4, the rule is always to leave before the sun goes down.

    I usually get to school at 7:00 and leave by 3:30 because I have my own children to pick up. What gets to me is the fact that I leave my house at 6:30 and I’m not usually home until 5:00 (because I live 20 miles from my school and I have daycare drop-offs and pick ups).
