I sit here on Friday eve, entirely worn out by the first week back after winter break.
Besides well teaching, I've had 2 RTI (response to intervention) meetings with the third tomorrow, a staff meeting, a grade level meeting, a parent-teacher conference and a meeting with my mentee. Tomorrow I'll also have an IEP meeting and meeting my second mentee for a lunch/work/grading date on Saturday at Panera.
I was also observed. Monday morning. Right after specials. I understand that observations are supposed to be a surprise, but I don't think Monday morning after a 2 week break is the best timing. (Nor was Halloween afternoon. Nor on an open dress day, where I had a half day sub, right before winter break...)
I'm ready for another break!
