Can't. Handle. Work. Anymore.

I've hit the point where I just cannot fathom working another full 2 weeks. I'm on my planning period right now (which isn't exactly "planning", per se, or I'd be napping right now - my planning period involves monitoring kids like study hall). I have a Dr. appointment on Friday after lunch and so I guess I'll just take a half day. Being with high school kids from 8 to 3:30 every day is killing me!!! I guess I'd be bored if I were at home and working will make it go faster, I just really wish I had enough leave to take off now! I don't want to be one of those teachers who resorts to movies or busy work because they don't feel like teaching anymore. Waaaaaaah, waaaaaah, waaaaaaah. I'm such a whiner.

  • I'm right there with you, but I have 8 weeks left! Luckily the woman who's taking my class once I'm on leave will start in 2 weeks so we'll overlap for awhile- which means I can really start checking out of teaching and not feel guilty about it.

    I'm impressed you've made it this far! Maybe baby will come early :) 

  • Congrats on making it that far.  Thankfully, I had the summer to relax before having Nicholas.  I never would have made it as I had completely checked out at the end of the school year.

  • I'm with you, I'm now flighty and forgetful and more than a little unmotivated.  The baby is taking over more and more of my brain.  I think she's only left me with the parts that want to decorate her room, eat chocolate, and daydream.
