Maybe it's because the countdown to spring break is on (15 more school days), maybe it's because test day-best day is this week, or maybe it's because I spent a total of 2 hours planning this weekend. Usually I spend over 6 hours planning, but this weekend I needed me time, and everything about it was worth it. As a teacher there is ALWAYS something else we could be doing for our class. Whether it's grading, perfecting a lesson, going over data, researching projects, planning tutorials, or cutting paper, there is always something. So I feel bad when I am doing nothing. That's how we got lost though. Overwhelmed by the job and become the bitter teacher. So on this cold, national holiday, Monday, I am reminded to take time for me. If you have been working so hard you forgot about you as well, take some time after school today. If you're a gym person, go sweat it out, if you're into desserts, get the extra slice, if you love bad TV, put the computer away and don't leave the couch. Simply be you today. Maybe your morning tomorrow will be as good as mine.
Happy Monday Dallas.
