So, this post has nothing to do with a new, great idea, but everthing to do with just needing to share "teacher" thoughts:
Thought #1: I'm tired.
Thought #2: My team-teacher is coming back after being out for 2 weeks with a broke ankle...OMG!! Thank GOODNESS! I have missed her!
Thought #3: What was I thinking??? I have 3 kids (one still in diapers), I'm 40 years old, and I'm married to a coach...how in the WORLD am I supposed to have time to work on my Master's-much less run in a 5k...ha!ha!ha!ha!
Thought #4: I DON'T want to be a principal.
Thought #5: Surely there is a curriculum/training job out there that's waiting for me.
Thought #6: Be patient.
Thought #7: I miss Crystal..my co-teacher from Mt. Vernon. I miss collaborating with her. I miss having her in my classroom every 30 minutes or so. I miss combining our classes and co-teaching. Bummer. Oh well.
Thought #8: The holidays are coming up! Yay! I miss my family, and it's my favorite time to teach (besides January, February, March, April, and May-especially May).
Thought #9: I'm out of thoughts, but I need to make it to 10.
Thought #10: I've found a GREAT place to raise my kids. It may be a challenge for me, but I've never given up before, so why start now. I have fantastic principals to help guide me and a team that supports me in every way imaginable.
Okay...Thought #11: I'm thankful.
