I can sadly say that this is accurate. ):
the accuracy hurts
We’ve been out of school since friday. The bottom picture is exactly what Oklahoma looks like right now.
There have been so many days this school year that I have questioned my ability to be a teacher. There have been so many days where I have also questioned my desire to teach. However, going on snow day number three (WHAT?! It hasn’t snowed since friday. We got 3 inches.) I miss those kids more than anything. More than miss them, I want to teach them. We need to read and learn about geometry. We need to practice our letters (yes, I have third graders who don’t know their letters). More than anything, I want these babies to grow. They have harder lives than I can ever imagine at home. I’m worried that some of them haven’t gotten a healthy meal for the past 5 days.
I guess this is a sign that I’m really a teacher now. I hope I get to see my 24 crazy faces on wednesday.
