Tough Week

Tough week. Scott, one of my co-workers, was sick. I had to pick up a few of his classes on top of an already tough schedule. Teaching 3 or 4 hours a day may not sound like much, but when those 3 or 4 hours are broken down into 3 or 4 completely different classes, it's a challenge. Tonight I taught first graders how to tell time, fourth graders time related statistics (60 seconds in a minute, 7 days in a week, etc.), and a bunch of fifth graders the past-perfect tense. Planning for 3 completely different classes that all run back-to-back can be tough. They pay me well for my time, so I shouldn't complain. No matter how trying the job can seem sometimes, I forget about the stress once I get in front of the kids...they are incredible.
