Rant and Roll

I am going to get to start seeing kids next week. I have been seeing a lot of my old students around campus, and I am starting to remember how much I enjoy the kids. I almost cried at the end of the day when I realized I had spent all week shuffling papers instead of getting my room ready or doing lesson plans.

Our new paperwork requirements are a nightmare. I spend 2 hours of the day copying and faxing or making sure someone got a fax. We are expected to fax our office within 24 hours of sending out an ARD meeting notice, and again within a few days of having the meeting. I have an average 3 meetings per week. Of course, I have to walk to another building and into the principal’s office to fax, and of course half the time the fax does not get through.

The worst part is, I will still have all this same stuff to do next week, and I will have to see kids. I just will not have time to do this next week! This is the closest I have ever felt to quitting.

Tomorrow I have to go to an all day training class, so I will have to spend this weekend getting ready for Monday.
