I'm so frustrated!
I'm frustrated with school- I love teaching however, I'm so tired of working the long hours!. I am at school by 6:30 every morning- with my students from 7:30-3:00 and I'm "allowed" to leave at 3:15. Ummm... hasn't happened yet this year- the earliest was 3:30 and that was the weekend I went out of town. I have a life in the evenings- or attempt to anyway. I have church on Wednesday nights and most other nights I have something going on. However, something is going to have to give or I'm going to lose my sanity. I spent 4 hours grading papers yesterday and entering them into the gradebook (on the computer) and another 2 hours working on some things for lessons this week and guess what? I'm still not done with either set of things! I ended crying myself to sleep last night because I'm so tired of it all. I feel like all I do is work and even though I attempt to have a life there are weeks when I leave school at 5 and then come home= just to do more work. I know one of my areas I need to work on is time management but I'm not that bad with it. I usually use my time wisely (not always but usually). Please help! I'm open to any advice- bring it on!!!! How do you manage your time- how do you balance your time between all that life throws at you (and I don't even have a family to take care of)? I already know I'll be making some changes at school but any advice you can give that might work would be awesome.
Okay, question number 2- if I wanted to search blogger for teaching blogs how would I do that?
And finally, a card- this is also from last weekend's creations- I'm about out of them because I've shared most of them- I'll be working on creating a few more this week- hopefully- if not, then this weekend (although Saturday morning I have to be at school).
