Massive update!

This is me everyday after school!

Whew! I know I haven't updated in a while because I have been SO INCREDIBLY BUSY!! Between internet issues at school (so enjoyable considering we have to do all of our data, attendance and SRI testing on the internet now) and meetings out the craphole, I am ready for a mini-vacation already. I am having such a hard time getting back into the swing of things. I haven't properly worked out in since before school started. My sleep schedule is either falling asleep at 8 pm or going to bed at 3 am. Now that football season has started, oy vey, my Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and Monday nights are consumed with footballllll. I find moving to another school and another subject area to be...daunting. I feel like I am failing. I know that I am great at teaching English but I feel as though I am not as good as other teachers in my department. Does anyone else have these feelings of...inadequacy? Or am I just going crazy?

The school itself is gorgeous (I plain on doing a massive picture post soon). The classrooms are state-of-the-art and we are completely green. Every classroom has a Promethean board (boo!hiss!), white board and kickass audio system (I may or may not crank Kayne West after school through the system...). The massive downside is that I teach in 4 different classrooms. My "homebase" is in the room that I teach only 1 class. My 1st and 3rd periods are in the same classroom (thankfully directly after each other). My 4th, 5th and 6th periods are in 3 different rooms. I am constantly moving around and get frazzled quite easily because I tend to leave things in my other room and have to go back. Sometimes the teacher in my "homebase" is understanding, sometimes she isn't. I just can't wait until I get the hang of things!

How has everyone else's first 3 weeks gone? Leave me some love below!!


  1. I feel you pain about switching rooms Eden! I have done that most of my career and I always leave things in spot A when I need it in spot B! Don't worry, it does get easier with time though! Have a great week!

    1. Thanks so much Melissa! I am now "injured". Fell at work because some kids were throwing gatorade around in the hallway and I slipped. All I want to do this weekend is sleep.
