I may or may not barely have my head above the water enough to take a breath on this Tuesday that is two, or maybe three months from the last Tuesday I wrote. How can this possibly happen every year that it takes months before I feel like I have a grip on my teaching life?
I have so much to reflect on:
Teaching full time for the first time in 22 years.
Bidding a sweet see you later to the perfect compliment to me of the past 7 years as my job share partner moved to another building.
Welcoming a teacher candidate and learning to be a mentor.
Finding peace and calm in the exceedingly turbulent waters of my current workplace.
Rerouting my energy to my kids to the East coast to the West coast.
But for now, I need to breath and get what sleep I can before another long, long day.
