Yesterday was a much-needed teacher workday in my county. This was the first one this year I believe that we weren't required to attend professional development all day. It was LOVELY! From 8:30-11:30 I completed my report cards and report card comments, cleaned up my room (which was grossly dusty), and entered some assessment results. Time seemed to fly!
Instead of going out for lunch, my team planned a pot-luck taco day, complete with soft tacos with fixins and buffalo dip (that has to be SO unhealthy, but was SO delicious!). We ate/talked for about an hour straight--much needed downtime for sure!
From 1-4 we planned as a grade level for next week. Time seriously flew by for those 3 hours.. but of course, we weren't exactly focused the entire time.. we somehow manage to talk about random things then get re-focused when we realize the time. We also took a planning "detour" to make a run to the supply closet to get paper. Every teacher loves to hear those magical words, "Come get your box of paper!" True excitement! Needless to say, I still managed to come home with a bag full of work. Funny how that works out. Oh, well. At least I got the chance to actually sit for once in my room and look around, and sigh in relaxation. We all know that NEVER happens in real life, so yesterday it was appreciated.
