My friend Carol, who writes over at Buttercup Counts Her Blessings, has a think called Pink Saturdays.
Her blog is awesome because she writes about whatever she wants and I love that. She travels a lot so that is fun to read, plus when she is home, she lives in New York City. We all know that could be a blog in and of itself.
Her pink Saturdays is a whatever post and I think I need a day like that.Maybe you can tell me about your week too. Make it our coffee date.
So here’s our coffee.
I wonder how much about work I can really talk but that’s where my focus of the week really got put.
Monday was a bust. I did not get much ready for the week, instead I focused on shiny stickers I had misplaced but wanted to use in my new planner as well as the cord for my cricut, which I still have not found. I found the stickers on Tuesday.
I had a nutrition class that over half the class did not do. I was so upset. When I told my boss what I had planned to do about the situation, he asked if I was upset. Yes, I was! He said he was glad and would be worried if I was not. Kind of funny to hear your boss say “I’m glad you are upset”. What I did was the half that did not do the paper had to go across the hall to another classroom and do their paper while the ones who did their work on time got to make pizza.
Thursday was another “I’m glad your upset” kind of day. My last class of the day is Culinary and they left my room a wreck. I did not clean up after them, instead I left it all out and they cleaned yesterday after they gave their presentation on their food.
On a semi-funny note, a student snapped at another one for not fully thinking. It was great, I was silently cheering the snapping student on. The other student plays ditzy way too well. Seriously! The assignment was read the question, answer giving your own thought.
To end the week…. the secretary of my FCCLA either quit or is taking a leave of absence. Over stuff that was said at the beginning of the school year and somehow got back to her yesterday. I am hoping she talks to me and we can figure this out. She is a great asset to my group.
My teens were being teens this week… thankfully, I made the decision to talk to my fellow teachers a little more this week. The Spanish teacher is so blunt and I enjoy talking to her. We made horchata for Dia de los Reyes yesterday and there is talk of making Chili Rellenos very soon. We agree- best Mexican food ever!!! Will post that recipe ASAP. I promise.
So how was your first week of 2017?
