I am a little antsy about starting school today. I am sure it won’t be bad, in fact I may even like it. 🙂 I am just very tense and I am going to have to do something about that soon. I wanted to go get a massage yesterday, but I didn’t make it out of the house. I got a lot done at home, but still should’ve ventured out.
(later) Just had a little pep talk with my students. I told them how they should take responsibility for their education. They were complaining that teachers don’t require enough of them. When the truth is that we are limited on how much we require of them because we can’t fail everyone. It’s not good for our evaluations, not good for the school as a whole to have so many failing students.
I don’t know, hope it did some good. I just don’t know how to get through to them.
