All the tireds.  All the stress.  All the Mondayness.

Every Sunday night, I dread (DREAD) school the next morning.  Then sometime around 8:00 p.m., I try to convince myself that it really won’t be as bad as I think it will be.  Sometimes I manage to lull myself into serenity, other times not.

Coming off of Thanksgiving Break, I was fairly certain my dread was overly extreme (see this post for part of the reason why).

Turns out it was spot on…

Just wondering if anyone in the #education community has had any experience in dealing with extremely toxic work environments at school. There are a lot of factors contributing to how bad things have gotten, but the bottom line is that I am at my wits’ end.

Specifically, have any of you taught in a school where things have gotten so bad that you have considered resigning or have actually resigned?

Any insight or advice is appreciated!

I just found out that my future mother-in-law is putting apples and raisins in the stuffing.

Thanksgiving might be ruined…

T-minus three hours until Thanksgiving break begins, and I don’t know about anyone else, but I could certainly use some cheer and warm fuzzies.

So here, internet.  Have some of my favorite engagement pictures.  There were others, but these are some of the best (and they don’t show too much of our faces, which, yes, I’m paranoid about).

These were all thrown during my tenth grade class. Done, done, and done.

i love you much(most beautiful darling)

more than anyone on the earth and i
like you better than everything in the sky

-sunlight and singing welcome your coming

although winter may be everywhere
with such a silence and such a darkness
noone can quite begin to guess

(except my life)the true time of year-

and if what calls itself a world should have
the luck to hear such singing(or glimpse such
sunlight as will leap higher than high
through gayer than gayest someone’s heart at your each

nearness)everyone certainly would(my
most beautiful darling)believe in nothing but love
