Gloom and Doom

I'm still here....do you still remember me??



I've been buried under a ridiculous amount of work from my job. This week we had conferences and I had parents lined up for 3 hours. After school. After teaching all day. With NO BREAK on that particular day. And I dismissed the kids then went right into the first conference and didn't stop for more than 3 hours. I was SO tired when I got home. That's part of the reason I have been MIA. Anything that could have happened this past week did happen, and I'm so tired! One more day of teaching and then the weekend. My birthday weekend!

I am being observed tomorrow. Every year we are observed and evaluated twice a year. Since we have a new principal, I have no idea what to expect. I won't lie and say I'm not nervous, because in all all honesty, I am. Very nervous. Not about my capabilities as a teacher, but about the "other" hidden things on that observation checklist that aren't disclosed to teachers. Things that we are supposed to be doing or supposed to have in our room but aren't told we need them, and then all of a sudden we're being marked down on our evals because we weren't doing something we didn't know we had to do. That's why I'm nervous. Sound fun? I don't think so. Wish me luck.
