This is Why I Do This

After a really hard day I have been known to say things like, "I'm not going back tomorrow!" or "If I didn't have to get ready for a substitute, I would definitely take a personal day tomorrow!" Some days just don't go the way I plan.  From start to finish, a day can just feel like I've accomplished nothing.  Students are misbehaving and plans are not working.  I just want to crawl into a hole and hide until summer!

Using My Time Off Wisely

When people say, "It must be nice to have all those days off," I used to get angry.

"Do you have ANY idea what we DO on our days off?" That was a popular response that fell on deaf ears.  No one cares to hear all of that.  Most people just want all those days off.  Most people also realize that what comes with the days off are days on.  Days completely on.  Never stopping to take a breath.  Those days off are not just to be nice to us.  They are to keep us from losing what brain power we have left.
