Fall Break has finally arrived. And I finally had a chance to get a good night's sleep and managed twelve hours. Can you say that we're exhausted? Pretty much so. Don't know exactly what it is, but everyone at The School has commented on the fact that we all feel physically and emotionally like we usually do in May, at the end of the year. I have my suspicions on the cause - more and more paperwork coming down from The State and the District (aka more BS we have to do other than teaching), more testing of the kids (aka time out of my calendar that I could use to teach), bigger class sizes, even less parent involved (every year it gets worse), and goodness knows what else.
We are tired. And it's only October.
