Started with a faculty meeting which was nice for 3 reasons:
1) beautiful choir performance, they sounded like angels
2) got a gift from the school district (and it was not a pink slip)
3) I did not have to stand morning duty.
I got frustrated with period 1 and chewed them out. They were handling this test review as if it was Saturday afternoon at the mall.
I wish I would handle the situation differently. My 3rd year teaching I never got mad. I don't know if it was the kids or me. My last two years at my privious middle school were dream years too. We never left what I
call "the honeymoon".
I hope this helps.
Love to Teach, and Teach with Passion!
