Closing the Teach For America Blogging Gap
Nov 13 2007


Since today was a holiday, and with thankgsiving coming up, I feel like November is going to be a breeze.  Four days this week, then the weekend, then 2 days with my students, then a glorious 5-day weekend.  I’m not sure if this is confirmed, but I have written in my planner that we have a professional development day on Friday the week after Thanksgiving.  I feel like X-mas is almost here!  The mythical but much talked about week off from work that everybody likes to talk about.  I refuse to believe that it actually exists.  I hear that teaching gets better after Christmas and it had better because I can’t keep it up like this much longer.  I find myself thinking a lot about next year and starting fresh with a new bunch of students.  I won’t make many of the same mistakes I made this year.  While I love my current students I am eager to think about how much smoother next year will be. 

I have my 6 year dating anniversary with my husband on December 2, which will be here before I know it.  It is mind boggling to think that we have been together for that long.

    Hi – its Amanda. Just wanted to drop a line and say hi. I know what you are going through and it is really hard. It sounds like you are doing a really good job and really put your heart into it – too bad not everyone in education is willing to do so much (or even just do their job!) Call anytime you want to chat- everyone can listen, but only other teachers REALLY can understand what its like. Take Care! :-)
