Don’t ever let anyone get away with telling you that teaching is an 8 – 3 job. This is my to-do list, which I created at 12:30 p.m. today, for TODAY since I realized that (even though I worked nearly all day yesterday) I still had lots of work to do to prepare for the week ahead.
I’m not complaining! I love teaching. However, IEP paperwork, minilessons, and charts do NOT write themselves. Plus, preparing for discussion groups with my kids means actually reading the books cover-to-cover.
Oh, and the bottom portion of the list is the personal stuff to do today. I’m crossing my fingers and hope I can get it all done in the next 9.5 hours!
