Ah, dear reader, I really had much better intentions.
I truly was going to post at least several times a week. I really was. But, unfortunately, the beginning of the year reality has pretty much changed that.
With 151 students, a significant increase over previous years, I'm spending a lot more time grading papers. Consider that it's like having an additional complete class of kids, it's taking way more time than it has in the past.
As for planning...what planning? We've had this mandatory meeting and that mandatory meeting, and mandatory STEM meetings every Tuesday, and this IEP meeting, and that IEP meeting, and that means that we are doing work after school (or at the ungodly hour of 5:00 am) because that's the only time we have free.
And so, to be honest, I'm just beat. At school at 6:30, home by 5:00, run or walk after I get home, cook supper, eat, clean up, grade papers, fall into bed by, we hope, 9:30...
I'm truly going to try to be better, I truly am...you're just going to have to be patient.
