I haven’t written in a couple months! I have been so busy. I’m trying to learn the balance of home life and work life. It is definitely not easy. I’m learning it’s nearly impossible to do your best as a teacher without staying at the school from 7am-5:30pm. This way of life is exhausting and I can’t do it anymore. I refuse to sacrifice my family and my life, in general, to make copies or do things that can wait another day. My goal this week is to leave by 4 every day. I need to take care of myself. If I’m in a better place personally, that will make me a better teacher, giving me patience, energy, and more love to give to the students.
Leaving my tangent, I finished another book. I forget how much I love reading for pleasure. I just finished Where’d You Go, Bernadette. This book is pretty different than what I usually read. I love reading intense, controversial books. Where’d You Go, Bernadette was fun and creative. The book is mainly written through letters which made it a little confusing, but also kept me on my toes. I would love to explore this author even more. Until then, I’m waiting for Wonder and Goblet of Fire from the library.
Six books to go!
