Summer break is a little over 6 weeks away, state testing is this week, and I think I've got the doldrums..... Honestly, I think I've performed pretty poorly over the last 2 nine week periods...... it feels like I'm just biding time until late May and then I can hopefully start over. Problem is my bunch of unmotivated juniors will be seniors, the low group of sophomores that will be juniors will now come to me, 8th grade splits off to where I get the lower group and the uppers go to the other teacher, my low and rowdy 7th graders will be 8th graders, and the current 6th graders (described as horrible) will become my 7th graders. At least I get a small group of upper 10th graders to teach. And the funny thing is that I love coming here and I think the students love me. Maybe I just need the time off.... Is anyone else feeling the pits, too?
