Does anyone else feel like teaching is one big rollercoaster ride? Up until today, the school year has been an absolute joy with very little challenges. Sure, I was working a lot outside of school but it kept me busy. Now today, the brakes hit pretty hard. A couple of the kids' attitudes flared up, and these are usually very good kids. I don't know if it was a fluke but it definitely put a damper on the day. I just didn't have "it" today. I wasn't my usual self and I have to be honest, I am starting to get a little tired. Does this sound like you, where you need a shot in the arm sometimes?
