I did it! I survived the first full week of school! My students are amazing! They are all wonderful and I know we will have a great year. The parents have been very supportive too! The administration is what is going to kill me! We have no lunch breaks. The K-2 teachers are spending a hour and a half every afternoon on "traffic duty" and I am so tried by the time I get home I have no energy for my own kids! I complained about the traffic duty and all I got was "I am sorry, hopefully in 3 weeks we can back it off a little." The staff morale is awful! One of the teacher told me on Friday " Only 188 school days left (we have an extended school year). Prepare to give up all hope, ambition and any life you ever had." I thanked him for ruining my long weekend! The $ is good, but I wonder if it is worth the headache. The K teacher was telling me she is feeling the same way too!
