Thus I've concluded I only have so many hours of productivity each day. I can have them early or late but I don't think I can create more. (This makes me think of my precious austistic 4th grade student in my first year of teaching who stood up during a lesson one day and yelled at the clock, "TIME IS ALWAYS AGAINST US!!!!!"
HA! That has made me laugh for 7 years now. I can't believe that first little group of kids I taught will be made up of seniors this year! I hope they've had better teachers than I since our 4th grade language arts class because during my last closet cleaning session (it's a big project), I found these end-of-year thank you notes from them indicating I grossly failed those precious souls in my role:
Good night friends. I wish you every effectiveness at the work of your hands.
