    I always wind up being more hard on myself than my supervisors are.
    Each year that I teach, I see that this is a common thing with me.

    I was like that sis. Don't feel bad about it. I have far less stress now. Go where you'll be appreciated and you won't want to hurt yourself or someone else every day.

    So my student sent me an email this afternoon in someone's class stating that he feels targeted by me, which is making him angry and it's affecting his friendships and home life because he can't control his anger. So it's my fault. I literally have no words. Or too many.

    I’d print it and schedule a parent conference. I definitely wouldn’t respond via email.
    Or just try to get him moved from my class.

    OMG! Are we counting down the days to the end of school already? Last week my head mentioned in our staff meeting and the room went completely silent. I have only 2.5 weeks of planned instruction because I'm going to my brother's wedding in Greece and then we have a school trip to Alaska. So needless to say this year's pretty much a wrap. I can't believe it.

    He was hit by a car by an 86 year old man. I can’t believe it and don’t know how I’m going to teach on Monday.

    Yes it was. I saw it on the news after my principal had emailed everyone. It’s going to be very tough tomorrow.

    Sending my love and prayers to you, the young man's family, and the entire school community. That is soooo difficult.

    Good news post:
    I am now a certified reading specialist and done with my Master's.
    I am in the final round of interviews for my #2 choice of a new school to work in.
    I just got an invitation for an interview for my #1 choice.

    And all this in time for my birthday on Friday. :yep:

    My principal is trying to sabotage me. Have any of you ever dealt with this?
