Without going into detail for privacy details (of my students, not mine), let me just say this has been a hell of a day.
Ups and downs... full of triumphs and tribulations, good news and bad news. Wanted to hug a couple kids, wanted to flat out kick a couple in the face, and just scratching my head at a few others.
This is one of those days where I sit back and wonder "how long can I keep doing this" and in the next breath "how could I ever do anything else".
Being a high school teacher in a public school in NC....never a dull moment.
Sometimes it's a job you hate to love.
Not sure what my point was in posting here since I can't mention any specifics. I can't even have a couple beers to unwind because I may have to go out to a school-related event later.
