I’m trying not to bring work home. But I seem to have a minimum of one meeting a week — a parent meeting, a meeting with the principal about Student Learning Objectives, a faculty meeting. I have no curriculum so I’m constantly scrambling to get plans and copies and resources and supplies. I get to work at 6:30 (school starts at 8:00), work through lunch, and stay at school until at least 4:00 and still often have to bring things home.
I feel like I spend nearly all my time planning lessons, communicating with parents, grading papers, and doing paperwork. Every once in a while I get everything done at work so I can leave my laptop and my papers at school. In fact, I did that last night. And then this morning I wondered how on earth I became so behind when I left everything caught up yesterday.
I am thankful for my job and the income and everything. I am grateful to God for what He has given me. I have an amazingly supportive husband who helps me all he can and he encourages me.
So I take deep breaths, re-read Scriptures about trusting God and having God’s peace, and try to exercise and get enough sleep.
And I ask people to pray for me. So would you?
