March Five

Five is my lucky number, but you wouldn’t know it today. To spare you, my dear readers, from a bed to bed story, let’s just say that it didn’t start out from the get go. I’ll give you some highlights.

  1. While out at my morning duty, Dr. Lomas, my vice principal,  walked toward me with that look on her face. A kind of smile with a shrug. I knew it could only mean one thing—she needed me to sub during my first period prep this morning. Of course, I said yes knowing that I wouldn’t have any time to prepare for my own day. Sheesh.
  2. During Readers Workshop, I couldn’t find my copy of Wonder that I had meticulously marked with stickies with my brilliant teaching points. I had to depend on my meager memory. Yikes.
  3. While we were packing up today, my tech team reported that two of our classroom Chromebooks were missing—numbers 5 and 11. I’m hoping that someone finds it in a backpack tonight. For the love of Pete!
  4. It’s 6:21pm and I’m still at school because my extra duty is chaperoning our Spring Pops Concert from 7 to 8:30 pm. That means that I’ll have spent 13 and 1/2 hours here at school. Holy Toledo.
  5. When I get home, I must write a reference letter for a lovely young man who is applying to San Jose State for his teaching credential. I hope I have a few brain cells left to write something coherent. Wahhh!

I hope that tomorrow will be a better day. But now that I think about it, this is pretty much a typical day in the life of a middle school teacher. Sheesh.
