I can’t explain it. I’ve been feeling wonky the past few days. I get really obnoxious and irritating…well, that is my perception. I know my blood sugar has been a little low and I’ve been really stressed out with work, but wow.
So, if in my dealings with any of you, at any level, here on the blog or otherwise, you have found me thusly, I’m sorry.
I need a vacation, I know that much.
You know what I think put me over the edge? Aside from drive from Hades, Sunday, I found out via a third party that my district’s superintendent sees my school’s faculty “as a problem” and that we need to “be broken”. Yeah, we only send kids to the best colleges in the country and to top universities in other countries.
I think all the sadness, angst, and stress of this school year is taking its toll and it is bleeding into how I interact (or overly interact) with folks.
This is my 11th year of teaching, and I have never felt this stressed out. I have colleagues say the same thing that have been teaching longer than I have. It all comes back to our love for the kids.
Thanks for “listening”.
