On Being Educated
I realize that the school district screwed with us this year, and instead of going back on a 3 day-4 day- full week schedule, we started out whole hog with a 5 day school week. I'm not happy about it either. In fact, being that I work with tired, whiny 6 year olds (and I can't blame them, I feel tired and whiny about it also), I might be more unhappy about it than you, because I also have to go outside in the middle of the day, on a shadeless playground for recess duty. I also realize that mother nature is a cruel, miserable hag this year and dumped another heat wave on us for the first week of classes. Remember that my school building is over 150 years old and brick, and once it heats up, it just keeps getting hotter. It's hard to be in an oven-like atmosphere, and focus and concentrate on.. well.. anything. I get it. I get it all. We are in the same boat if you think about it.
