What She Wore: Grey pants; white, long-sleeve tee; navy blue sweater; black snow boots.
Today was ONE OF THOSE DAYS. You know, it’s Valentine’s day, and the kids are a little crazy. Well, one pushed me over the edge today. Honestly, it wasn’t one–it was the whole class. No matter what happened, if I paused for a second, they would turn around and start talking to whoever was closest. There was even a moment where I was thisclose to muttering some profanity (but, of course, being the stunning professional that I am, I caught myself). After I started feeling my head start to pound in anger, I let the other teacher take over for a few minutes, and went to the bathroom to cool down. When you get to this point, you don’t feel like such a great teacher.
But sometimes, there’s a good point in a day like that.
I work with two different teachers–math and science. The first half of my day with one, and the second with another. As I headed toward science, one the students came out of the room and spoke to me: Mrs. M, the kids are being bad and there, and I told them they better watch out–Mrs. M is coming, and she don’t play.
There is no higher compliment.
