I got an email yesterday that someone had actually commented on this thing! Rest assured, I am still here, trucking right along. I actually pop in regularly to click through my links to other blogs. I haven’t posted for a number of reasons, the biggest is that this may be my hardest teaching year, except for my first, although really it might be worse because I know what is possible in my classroom, and not being able to make that happen is killing me. I just feel like such a Debbie downer that I don’t want to be all full of darkness here. Also, the things happening at my school are so distinctive that I fear I would “out” myself if I dared to write about them. I’m just sayin’, I have some real wackadoos this year. “All the more reason to post!” you might argue. Yeah, you might be right, but my heart just isn’t in it, and my posts with no heart really suck.
It’s not all bad, I do have a few adorable tiny boys with serious cases of the wiggles, and they never cease to amuse me. The true wackos are taking up most of my energy these days though and I’ve become very disheartened with “The System” and the total lack of accountability for parents.
On the brighter side of the moon, I have made a major (two major actually) life-changing decisions, both are very very exciting for me, but cannot yet be revealed. (No, we are not having a baby!) Is this a desperate ploy to get you to keep checking back here until I can actually reveal my news? Maybe. I hope it works!
It won’t be long now….
