We miss our 3 blog a day school year quota and already getting an email asking if we quit? I consider it an honor! The answer is no, but let me break it down. School is back on so I'll keep it PG. School is kicking our collective rumps in the usual negative ways but also in some very positive ways.
Positive - We both have quite a few new responsibilities and in an effort to move our selves forward as teachers and continue surpassing ourselves, we're having to put in more work. That means more voluntary observations, more collaboration, more planning, and most importantly more talking to students
Negative - I'm tired. There's more issues my students have that I have to deal with because I'm talking to them more. There's even more issues that I know are waiting because I'm better at responding to my students' needs and more of them WANT to talk to me.
We'll be back tomorrow with the normal blog schedule and a rundown + podcast on Saturday so you don't have to stress your fragile teacher fingers trying to find all the news yourself.
Thanks for caring. We appreciate your worrying. Not going anywhere.
