I have had a horrible year this year. I moved from 700 miles away to help open a new charter school. In just 4 months we went through 3 school leaders. Our current school leader leads with threats and intimidation. And half the time she isn't at the school to deal with school issues. I have been disrespected her in front of students as well as other teachers. I have spent more days miserable this year than in every other year of my life combined. On a good day, I am at school from 6:30-5:30 (we are an extended day school though). The good news is that my boyfriend and I are moving to another state and starting a new life. I have an AMAZING job I am looking forward to starting. I have just spent the last 3 hours breaking down the state's and the archdiocese's learning standards into a year-long plan. I am so inspired for the next school year! Isn't it amazing how the thought of a new year inspires you to work even harder than before???? What are you doing to prepare for next year?
