the monkeys.

The students have had two four-day weekends in a row. They are bouncing off the walls this week. We (the teachers) have all decided that there is such a thing as too much time off. They've completely gotten out of the routine. I have an odd feeling it's going to take the next several weeks to get them back in the routine.

Also, the assistant principal bulldog has caught me being a bad teacher twice this week. I'll admit that I'm still feeling emotional and slightly apathetic as a result of my experience last week. But I'm trying. Anyway, at one point a.p.b. came in while the class and I were discussing Homecoming. Oops. At another point I left the room to use the restroom. Of course, he came in at that point. I wanted to tell him that it was either go to the restroom or have to go home and change...he didn't ask though. Gah!! Twice in one week...lucky me. I suppose I'll have to be on my best behavior for a bit.

I'm just really having one of those I'm-a-bad-teacher weeks.

This too shall pass.....:) Next week will be better.

It's unfortunate that some administrators live to "catch" teachers doing bad instead of good. I'm fortunate to work at a school where the administrators are supportive most of the time (no one's perfect 100% of the time). EHT is right… This too will pass. And, if your class really is filled with monkeys, then perhaps a better moniker for the apb would be Banana Head ;-) just a thought…
